A Great Example of Cooperative Among Cooperatives

IDC-USA has partnered with fellow cooperative Independent Stationers to provide IDC Owner-Disributors with a comprehensive IDC Member Advantage Program for office supplies.  Members of both cooperatives are independently owned and operated organizations bringing local expertise to the market that can't be found at the "big box" stores. 

During the International Year of the Cooperative, look around for opportunities to work with other cooperatives.  It may be as simple as working with a food co-op to cater your next board meeting or as large as the partership between IDC-USA and Independent Stationers.  Let your imagintion be your guide.  Let's show the world that we strongly believe in Principle 6 - Cooperation Among Cooperatives.
