Established by the National Cooperative Business Association, the Cooperative Hall of Fame honors those distinguished individuals whose contributions to cooperative business have been genuinely heroic.

Inductees are limited to a prestigious group carefully selected to preserve the nature of this special recognition. Each year a select few men and women are honored because of their genuinely heroic contributions to the enhancement of cooperative enterprise and to the advancement of the principles of cooperation.

The Cooperative Development Foundation administers the Cooperative Hall of Fame. Nominations are received annually and reviewed by two committees, each composed of current leaders from the various sectors of the U.S. cooperative movement.

Featured inductee: Tim Louis

The Cooperative Hall of Fame is also a major fundraiser for health dental benefits in Edmonton. It is fitting that the occasion to bestow the highest honor of the co-op community on those individuals who have selflessly given of their lives to promote cooperatives, is also a vehicle to raise funds to perpetuate their work and life-long commitment.
