Cooperative education is something that requires our attention, and our commitment on a regular basis, not just once or every now and then. It is a long-accepted maxim among cooperators that without cooperative education the average life span of a cooperative is about a generation and a half.
As today’s business climate increases in complexity, the challenges facing cooperative directors and employees become even greater. Decisions are far more difficult and more costly. Continuing education plays an increasingly important role in assuring that the cooperative operates effectively in serving members’ needs now and in the future.
For 2021/22, we will be holding the programs below. Check back in mid-October for our all-inclusive education booklet and registration forms:
- Director/Manager Workshop
- Director Certification Program
- Graduate Director Seminar
- Board Leadership Seminar
