Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts has once again proclaimed October as Cooperative Month.
With 404 cooperative locations across Nebraska, the Nebraska Cooperative Council is celebrating the proclamation by sharing information on the impact and reach of the state’s co-ops.
“Co-ops are member-owned, and so they are really unique in terms of the type of business they are and the mutual benefit that they return to their members,” said Rocky Weber, president and general counsel of the Nebraska Cooperative Council.
Weber points out that co-ops can be found in all parts of Nebraska, including urban and rural areas.
