The world of Co-ops
Placeholder Image
Last weekend I attended a cooperative (co-op) development workshop sponsored by the National Cooperative Business Association (NCBA) I was invited to. NCBA’s Executive Director of the Co-op Center Lisa Stolarski, of Washington, D.C., traveled to Augusta, Ga. to inform a small group on the “what” and “how” of co-ops. Stolarski explained the different types of co-ops around the world, the process of planning and starting a co-op and the benefits and realities of co-ops.
