Massachusetts event will focus on co-op leadership; CUs invited to attend

New York credit union professionals and volunteers are invited to attend a two-day, college-level co-operative leadership training in Greenfield, Massachusetts. The event will be hosted Oct. 24-25 by Saint Mary’s University and the Neighboring Food Co-op Association.

The program is intended for CEOs, senior managers, board members and staff of all types of cooperatives – including credit unions.

Attendees will learn new practices and insights in co-operative management, along with tangible examples of how to translate that knowledge into action. Throughout the course, attendees will be given the opportunity to test concepts, frameworks and tools on their co-operative, and gain exposure to emerging concepts in the field of co-operative management and governance.

Session topics include:

  • how to approach the management of a co-operative/credit union/mutual;
  • how to leverage a competitive advantage and highlight the unique value propositions of co-ops to reach more consumers and better serve members; and
  • co-operative economic trends.

The event will be led by Daniel Côté, a strategy professor who teaches about co-op management through the St. Mary’s Master of Management: Co-operatives and Credit Unions program.
