A little history
CoMinnesota started in late 2011 in response to a questions, “Why in the state of Minnesota, which has the most cooperatives of any state, isn’t there more cross-sector collaboration and promotion of the cooperatives? What can be done about that?”
Since then a fluid network of cooperative volunteers has responded to this challenge by comingling cooperators at ongoing programming ranging from special events to regular brown bag topic lunches and happy hours. We have also maintained the skeletal infrastructure of a Steering Committee, a website and an email newsletter sent to a list of almost 700.
For now, CoMinnesota is maintaining a website as a co-op resource and sending out periodic newsletters of interesting news bits and helping promote various events.
