U.S.-Cuba Cooperative Working Group




Established in 2014 and led by NCBA CLUSA, the USCCWG's mission is to build a stronger and more vibrant cooperative movement in the U.S. and Cuba, while supporting Cuban economic progress.

Official launch of the U.S. – Cuba Cooperative Working Group

On Tuesday, March 10, 2015 NCBA CLUSA held a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, DC to announce the official launch of the U.S.-Cuba Cooperative Working Group (USCCWG) and release a research report on the emerging role co-ops are playing in Cuba's economic reform and how engagement between U.S. and Cuban cooperative sectors can bolster the movement in both nations.

Following his opening statement, Mike Beall, president and CEO of NCBA CLUSA, moderated a Q&A session where inquiries where answered by two panels of experts in cooperative affairs and legislation.


Panel 1: The Case for Cuban Cooperatives and U.S. Engagement 

This panel will analyze recent developments in Cuba, provide insight on the emerging role of co-ops in Cuba's economy, review the findings of last year's USCCWG study trip and explore the opportunities and challenges of broader co-op to co-op engagement. 


Panel 2: Legislative and Regulatory Context of Next Steps in U.S. – Cuban Relations and Cooperative Engagement

This panel will consider openings for engagement posed by recent legislation, explore the context of the evolving relationship between the U.S. and Cuba and examine ways credit unions and Florida constituents can best position themselves in this developing environment.
