Become a Co-opNEXT Organizer!

With the CodeNEXT drafting process in full swing, the ACBA needs as many dedicated volunteers as it can get to help us fight for the future of Austin co-ops. Our efforts over the next year will affect cooperative development in Austin for decades to come - there's never been a more vital or important time to get involved with co-op advocacy. One of the great things about being a co-oper is that we already know that when we come together, we can accomplish so much more than we ever could on our own. With that in mind, we're inviting the dedicated movers and shakers of the co-opsphere to join our Co-opNEXT Organizing Team! We need people who can:

  • Conduct research

  • Organize events

  • Write letters

  • Make phone calls

  • Transport people to/from City Hall

  • Attend housing co-op meetings

  • Attend City Council/Commission meetings

  • Make cool art

  • And more!

We need people of all ages and skill levels to help out on this campaign. Whoever you are, wherever you are, there's room for you at the table. There is no minimum or maximum time commitment to be an Organizer - as an all-volunteer organization, we understand people can only give as much as their lives allow for. If you want to join the ACBA in building a more cooperative City, please sign up below:
