More than 1,200 celebrate cooperatives with Summit Credit Union

Madison-based financial cooperative highlights local co-ops with celebration

MADISON, Wis.—Summit Credit Union’s tenth Co-op Connection took place over the weekend on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, next to the Dane County farmers’ market. More than 1,200 attendees took part in the free event, which celebrates cooperatives from across the state.

“Co-operatives have a proud history in Wisconsin,” said Summit Credit Union CEO & President Kim Sponem. “We are honored to sponsor the Co-op Connection event again this year and gather area co-ops to tell our stories of impact and investment in our communities.”

Co-op Connection not only allows participants to discover and learn about cooperatives in their community, but also provides an opportunity for the co-ops to develop strong and lasting relationships with one another.

The event offers a variety of family-fun activities, prize drawings and samples from participating co-ops.

The event was hosted by Summit Credit Union and sponsored by the Willy Street Co‐op, The Wisconsin Credit Union League, The National Credit Union Foundation, and Roots4change Co‐op/Cooperativa Raíces para el Cambio.
