ACCESS was born of the collective efforts the Alberta Community Co-operative Association (ACCA), British Columbia Co-operative Association (BCCA), Volunteer Alberta (VA), Econocoop. Their goal is to provide member organizations with the variety of services they need to be successful. There are no additional fees except to pay for the services used. This is an easy way to find all the experts for your co-op or non-profit needs and saves you the time of not having to search and vet your own experts. They truly are living the 6th co-operative principle of Co-operation among Co-operatives.
