CoFED holds several events during the year. We hold an annual summit for students across North America and regional convergences and campus visits throughout the year.
See below for our upcoming events!
We’d also love to hear from you if you’re interested in offering sponsorship, suggesting a site location, or hosting a co-op or food operation tour!
The Northeast Student Cooperative Convergence aims to bring together students (broadly defined - lifelong learners welcome) involved/interested in co-ops, social and economic justice to learn from and about each other, share skills, experiences, struggles, successes and food and to strategize to support one another in the upcoming year and beyond.
March 28th-30th in Amherst, Massachusetts
The Northeast Student Cooperative Convergence will be offered on a sliding scale $25-100. We ask participants to contribute what they are able to afford. We encourage you to apply for scholarships to cover the cost of travel & registration from the Ralph K. Morris Foundation and are happy to support you in completing the application and/or applying to funding from your school/organization for cooperative education.
And for student cooperatives or groups of students doing cooperative organizing, consider a $100-500 sliding scale CoFED Membership and register for the convergence as a group.

On April 11-13, 2014 in Greensboro, North Carolina participants will converge at Guilford College to share knowledge and experiences in order to learn and train for the growing movement of cooperatives and gain skills related to all aspects of running, working with, and being a member of a co-op. Workshop programs will focus on subjects like consensus making, local co-op movements, confronting privilege and a host of other topics.
The complete schedule will be announced as the time nears!
