Co-ops, Building Community Daily!
For those of you that I had the opportunity to meet at CCMA thank you! You made my first CCMA a memorable and amazing one and I look forward to connecting with you all again.
As you may or may not know, one of the benefits of your NCBA membership is the option to distribute NCBA or cobranded discount pharmacy cards to your members and/or staff for free! These cards provide members and their dependents with some of the lowest prices on prescription drugs, averaging savings of between 10-60% on most medications from more than 50,000 pharmacies nationwide! These cards could also be a great way for you to promote your food co-op and your value and service to your members by giving away these cards at your registers for free. Also did you know that every time that someone swipes your card, your cooperative will receive a cash incentive!
We think this is a very special and unique aspect of your NCBA membership. In the coming weeks, please expect a call from Christian Brower to help further explain this great feature and answer any individual questions that you may have.
Thank you for choosing membership with NCBA and I look forward to seeing you all again at our Annual Meeting in MN!
