The communications and public relations department offers graphic design, writing, editing, videography and photography to the association’s 16 member cooperatives. In addition, the department is responsible for publishing Cooperative Living magazine and the membership and legislative guides. The department staff also assists member cooperatives with their special publication projects, ranging from advertising layouts and proxy wraps to annual reports. Our photography and videography team records events through our territory, including with drone footage. The team also maintains several websites, including, the Gaff-n-Go Rodeo site and this site, while maintaining an active presence on social media. We publish Connections, an internal e-newsletter aimed at our association members.
