Biographical/Historical note

The Washington State Council of Farmer Cooperatives (formerly the Washington State Cooperative Council) was first organized on September 25, 1936, at the Western Washington Research and Extension Center (WWREC) in Puyallup. The charter membership consisted of 45 cooperative leaders representing 35 farmer-owned or -controlled marketing and purchasing organizations. The original impetus for organizing the Council was to encourage and promote a closer mutual relationship between all farmer cooperative business associations in Washington and to provide a mechanism for state agricultural legislation advocacy. The Washington State Council of Farmer Cooperatives is a non-profit organization and a member of the National Council of Farmer Cooperatives. (see Cage 445)
