Director Certification Program (DCP)

The Director Certification Program (DCP) provides participants with information for improving skills used in fulfilling their roles as cooperative directors. The four phases cover cooperative principles and practices; roles and responsibilities of directors; directors’ legal obligations; long-range strategic planning; understanding and using financial statements; and management evaluation and compensation.

DCP is conducted annually in January. The next offering will be January 7-8, 2020 at the Younes Center in Kearney.  Each phase is a day-long program with two phases offered each day in separate rooms (Phases 1 and 3 on January 7; and Phases 2 and 4 on January 8).
