IOWA CO-OP MONTH

Sep 15, 2022


To celebrate National Cooperative Month in October, the Iowa Institute for Cooperatives is partnering with the Iowa Credit Union League and the Iowa Association for Electric Cooperatives on an Iowa Co-op Month campaign to raise awareness about the positive impact of cooperatives in our state. Governor Kim Reynolds recently signed a proclamation declaring October as Co-op Month in Iowa.

The Iowa Co-op Month campaign works to educate Iowans about the “cooperative advantage” through a landing page at www.IowaCooperatives.com, media outreach and coordinated social media posts. Here are some co-op facts you might not know:
  1. Nearly, one in two Iowans is a member of a cooperative.
  2. If all of Iowa’s 12,000 cooperative employees were grouped together, they would be one of the top 10 largest employers in the state.
  3. Iowa’s locally owned cooperatives generate more than $60 million in property taxes each year, which are paid to Iowa communities.
 
We’re proud of our cooperative heritage of being locally owned and governed with a mission to improve quality of life for our member-owners. At Linn Coop Oil Co, we are democratically controlled by our members through an elected board of directors who make long-term decisions for the cooperative. All co-ops are guided by 7 Cooperative Principles, which is a key reason why cooperatives operate differently from other agricultural, financial, or organizations providing utility services; we always put the needs of our members first.
 
Follow us on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter during the month of October to watch new videos celebrating the cooperative difference featuring Iowans just like you. Learn more about the cooperative advantage at www.IowaCooperatives.com.
