SDAC staff will travel to Washington, D.C., next week for the 20th annual Washington Conference for the Naitonal Council of Farmer Cooperatives. 

Last week, we participated in the Special Legislative Session dealing with recreational use of nonmeandered waters on Monday.  On Wednesday, we hosted 53 accountants, bookkeepers, and controllers for our annual ABC Conference. The conference received high marks from those who attended.

We are now finalizing details for the SDAC/SDCMA annual meeting and joint convention, to be held September 13-14 in Watertown.  We hope to see you there!


























The South Dakota Association of Cooperatives is a statewide organization that works on behalf of all types of cooperatives - farm supply and marketing, electric, and communications.  Economic studies indicate that the 160 marketing, energy, communication, banking, and processing cooperatives in South Dakota contribute $7-$10 billion in annual output to the state's economy.

SDAC provides effective representation on government affairs issues that affect our members.  We focus on legislative, administrative, and regulatory issues at the state and national levels.  We serve as a link among cooperatives, state agencies, legislators, congressional staff, farm organizations, commodity groups, and non-agricultural organizations.  We also provide educational and leadership training opportunities for cooperative staff and board members.
