“The roster of the Cooperative Hall of Fame tells the story of the U.S. cooperative community through the lives and accomplishments of extraordinary individuals,” said Gasper Kovach, Jr., board chair, Cooperative Development Foundation (CDF). “Induction to the Cooperative Hall of Fame is reserved for those who have made genuinely heroic contributions to the cooperative community.”

The Cooperative Hall of Fame is administered by the Cooperative Development Foundation (CDF), the 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation that promotes self-help and mutual aid in community, economic and social development through cooperative enterprise.  CDF is an affiliate of the National Cooperative Business Association (NCBA).  Nominations are received annually from throughout the cooperative community, with the final selection made by the NCBA Board of Directors on the recommendations of a selection committee of national cooperative leaders.  The Cooperative Hall of Fame gallery is on display in NCBA’s offices in Washington, DC and it also can be visited on the web at Heroes.coop.
