'22-'23 Cooperative Special Projects Coordinator @ NWCDC
 
 
 
The Northwest Cooperative Development Center (NWCDC) is a regional nonprofit that focuses on developing and supporting Cooperatives across the Pacific Northwest. NWCDC primarily supports cooperatives in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho but has also supported projects as far away as Alaska and Hawai’i. Founded by cooperatives in 1979, the Center has grown into the Northwest’s leading provider of services for co-op business development. A co-operative is an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly-owned and democratically-controlled enterprise. Co-operatives are based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. Headquartered in Olympia, Washington, NWCDC works with co-ops of all sectors. About one-half of NWCDC's programs involve preserving low-income manufactured housing communities by forming resident-owned cooperatives able to buy their manufactured home park and operate it democratically in perpetuity. The remaining half of NWCDC's programs surround converting existing businesses to worker or consumer-owned co-ops and helping start-up groups form new co-op businesses. Our work includes coaching co-op members and boards, drafting business and strategic plans, developing systems of governance, and building co-ops' organizational capacity. Members serving with NWCDC would become experienced in the cooperative business model and will acquire experience taking a project through many stages beginning with research and visioning and ending with launching and evaluating success.
