Introducing the Cooperative Business Journal Online

June 2013

Welcome to the ‘new’ Cooperative Business Journal (CBJonline), which will be delivered online monthly beginning June 2013.

Our cooperative community has grown tremendously in the past decade, and the Cooperative Business Journal has been a ‘go to’ publication to get in-depth and thought provoking articles on issues facing cooperatives and the communities that support them. We are continuing that tradition.

Moving from print to CBJonline presents the ideal opportunity to extend our reach to thousands more cooperators, cooperative organizations, legislators and others, providing each of our readers the opportunity for more interaction and collaboration. We will expand the content of CBJonline to address issues relevant to the cooperative industry, and as an education tool for legislators and the general public about the economic and social power of cooperatives.

CBJonline will also host weekly updates and news items that affect all sectors of the co-op community, giving you an opportunity to connect with cooperators in other sectors and providing the information you need to promote cooperatives in your communities.

We are proud to bring to you the CBJonline. We know you will find it interesting, informative, and useful in our collective work to promote and protect the cooperative business model.

All the best,

Mike Beall
President & CEO
