October is National Co-Op Month in Maine and across the country. Maine is one of the strongest co-op states in the country with strong support of financial cooperatives (credit unions), food cooperatives, agricultural cooperatives and more. Credit unions are the largest cooperative in Maine with more than 646,000 members. For information, visit, ncba.coop, or cooperativemaine.org.
Maine's credit unions are proud members of the Maine Council For Elder Abuse Prevention. We support efforts to prevent elder financial exploitation and other elder abuse in Maine. You can help!
