Today, 25th January, marks the fortieth anniversary of NABCO’s foundation in 1973. Since that time, the Association has led the way for co-operative housing in Ireland. NABCO:
As Ireland’s national federation representing, promoting and developing the co-operative housing movement, we are committed to using this anniversary year as a platform to launch further growth and development:
Throughout our history, we have been able to show that there is a real alternative in housing in Ireland. Our co-operative nature – democratic member control – is our distinct contribution to housing provision. Co-operative Living is our focus and in this anniversary year, we will deepen the opportunities for our members to get involved in leading their communities through co-operative social enterprise.
There is no doubt that these are challenging times for Ireland but I am excited to be part of an organisation that continues to offer real solutions. We have built our success through working co‑operatively with central and local government, state agencies, the community and voluntary, and private sectors. On behalf of the Board of NABCO, I want to thank you and your organisation for your contribution to building better communities. I look forward to continuing to work together in the future.
