What does it mean to be a co-operative cluster?

As a co-operative, each member agency gets an equal voice in the decision-making process for the collective group. Consolidated is run by its member agency Principals, with the goal to serve and mutually benefit all of its member agencies. Since other cluster groups typically operate under a corporate structure, they are built to enhance the cluster’s bottom line, rather than that of its members. Within our co-operative structure, agency Principals have the opportunity to serve in leadership positions on CA’s Board of Directors. In other words, agencies can be involved as little or as much as they wish.
