Yellow Wood was invited to collaborate with the National Cooperative Business Association to develop the introductory workshop and framework for subsequent workshops in a conference track for community economic development practitioners. The initial workshop was designed to explore how cooperatives build seven forms of wealth in their communities and regions. Subsequent workshops described the specific impacts of different types of cooperatives on wealth creation and community development.
