CBL 101 — Cooperative Board Leadership. Participants gain practical tools for governing their organizations and engaging with their local communities. We’ll cover the board’s fiduciary role, cooperative history, principles and values, cooperative governance and basic financial literacy.

Building a Great Relationship with your GM — Applied Governance Topics workshop. Participants will learn how boards can create and maintain a highly productive and successful relationship with their co-op’s general manager, leading to a stronger organization with a board that leads through strategic and generative conversations that connect every participant and stakeholder.

Co-op Cafe — Everybody Can Shop at the Co-op. The Co-op Cafe is a highly interactive format for focused conversations that advance our thinking, build shared understanding and create alignment. These day long workshops are designed to engage participants in discussions centered around shared best practices and innovative solutions designed to help your organization thrive.
