CCNC was developed to connect, educate and promote the effectiveness of all cooperatives. One way of doing this is to offer Cooperative Dynamics Workshop, specifically designed to bring co-op employees, members and directors up-to-speed on the principles, governance, issues and challenges that make cooperatives a unique way of doing business in today's competitive market economy.
This interactive workshop provides attendees with a greater understanding of the purpose of a co-op, the roles of the board and staff, the economic impacts and service benefits of co-ops. Also covered is how co-ops differ from other corporations and the details of a business model for cooperatives. All industries will be discussed.
Seats are limited. This is a great program for employees and directors to fully understand the cooperative movement as a whole and see beyond their industry. All attendees will receive a cooperative bag with products from national cooperatives. Lunch is catered and networking time is provided.

WHAT PAST ATTENDEES SAY ABOUT THE CO-OP DYNAMICS COURSE
“The Co-op Dynamics Workshop gave me a great opportunity to meet people from other cooperatives and learn the fundamentals of what it takes to be a successful cooperative. It was nice to realize that working for a cooperative sets us apart from all the rest! Cooperatives are the companies that everyone wishes they could do business with because of great personalities and the employees actually viewing the members as people and friends rather than just numbers.”

"Trainers were awesome! Very effective in creating a learning environment that was interesting even when the materials were not always interesting. I found this informative and very worth wile. I really enjoyed the day!"
