Cooperative Couples Conference

Each year, we sponsor couples from the southwest Georgia area to attend an educational conference with other couples sponsored from cooperatives in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.

Conference Objectives

  • Network with leaders of cooperatives
  • Learn about the economic and service benefits of cooperatives and how they differ from other corporations
  • Exchange ideas with other young couples and cooperative leaders
  • Strengthen your existing relationships with cooperatives

Cooperative Couples Conference Application

One couple from each state will be chosen to return as Host Couple for the next year’s conference.

The conference takes place at The Ridges Resort & Marina in the Blue Ridge Mountains, set on the shores of beautiful Lake Chatuge. Enjoy indoor and outdoor meeting spaces, complimentary high-speed internet, free parking, and world class hospitality. Learn more.
