The Mid America Cooperative Council (MACC) is a multi-state, non-profit trade association founded in January 2003, by a group of like-minded individuals. These individuals understood the impact cooperative principles have on the sustainability of co-ops, yet they began to see a widespread erosion of co-op knowledge among co-op communities. All sectors of cooperatives were engaged in establishing MACC. The founders also wanted to address the lack of unique co-op educational resources available in the Midwestern region. Members co-aligned and co-created MACC, filling this advocacy gap. MAC-Ed is a subsidiary 501c3 that concentrates on the educational aspects of MACC. MACC operates in the states of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Michigan. The Mid America Cooperative Council has a new Facebook Page.
