Vernon Oakes Interviews Judy Ziewacz, Interim President of NCBA, today

Tune in to WOL 1450 AM tomorrow for Everything Co-op, hosted by Vernon Oakes. This week Vernon interviews Ms. Judy Ziewacz, Interim President of the National Cooperative Business Association. Vernon and Ms. Ziewacz will discuss her involvement in the cooperative movement, and initiatives of NCBA CLUSA..

For over 40 years, Judy has been a champion for cooperative development, articulating a steady and unswerving vision about the power of cooperation, and persistently reminding cooperatives and cooperative institutions that they exist to empower people. Her incredible capacity as a strategist has resulted in cross-sectoral coalitions that have created critical infrastructure for the co-op community domestically and internationally.

Ziewacz was instrumental in launching the nation’s first statewide cooperative development center – now known as Cooperative Development Services. She also played a key role in establishing CooperationWorks!, a national cooperative development network, which is responsible for the creation of hundreds of co-ops, thousands of jobs, and serving hundreds of thousands of members. As the Executive Director of the Cooperative Development Foundation, she led the charge for the creation of dotCoop, an important branding tool for cooperatives in the internet age.

The National Cooperative Business Association CLUSA International (NCBA CLUSA) is the trade association for cooperative businesses in the United States and an international development organization. NCBA CLUSA provides cross-sector advocacy, education and technical assistance that helps cooperative businesses thrive.
