CVA invites you to celebrate October Co-op Month

Oct 02, 2023

CVA Beloit Office

The month of October is recognized as National Co-op Month; a month to bring awareness to the cooperative business model. In this business model, the organization is owned and run jointly by its members, who share the profits and benefits. Central Valley Ag (CVA) is proud to be a member of the cooperative community.

The theme for Co-op month this year is "Owning Our Identity." To celebrate our unique identity, CVA has opened a retail store where everyone is welcome to purchase new co-op merchandise. The store will remain open until October 31st, and orders will be shipped after the store has closed. To order a t-shirt, hoodie, or crewneck, click here to shop. 

Throughout the month of October, CVA has some exciting things planned. CVA employees across Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa are celebrating with location photos, various events and sharing cooperative fun facts on CVA’s social media platforms. Keep a lookout on social media for more information!
