Co-ops 101 - Get the Low-Down on How to Start a Cooperative

Co-ops 101 - Get the Low-Down on How to Start a Cooperative (For Farmers, Value-Added Producers, Composters and More!)

Do you want to know more about cooperatives? Have you thought of starting one but aren't really sure where to begin? Susann Mikkelson, the Director of the Southwest Cooperative Development Center, will answer these questions and more. This informative presentation will help you understand the basics of a cooperative business or project, what you need to know to get started, and how the SW Center might assist members interested in pursuing a cooperative business.

The future holds more opportunity for those who work together, finding efficiency and creativity through partnerships.

About the Southwest Cooperative Development Center (SCDC): They are a new partnership between Farm to Table, La Montanita Co-op, and Rocky Mountain Farmers Union. The SCDC is working to improve economic conditions in New Mexico's rural areas through the creation, retention, and expansion of sustainable cooperative and mutually owned businesses, particularly related to healthy food access, and local and regional food systems. Services of the Center include training and technical assistance, assistance identifying and securing funding, and referrals to other resources, among others.

The meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 8th, from 9:00 am to 10:30 am at the MRCOG offices located at 809 Copper Ave NW.
