The RCA can provide direct, hands-on technical assistance to individuals and groups at every level of co-op development, from ideation to incorporation.

The resources at left, especially those offered by the UW Center for Cooperatives, are excellent places to begin if your’e considering forming a co-op.

Our process typically begins with an email. Depending on where in the development process you or your group stands, we will either set up a face-to-face meeting, or provide you further resources for “homework” before setting up a meeting. The first meeting is typically free of charge, as we want to evaluate for ourselves to what extent further assistance may be required to help you get your project off the ground.
