The International Centre for Co-operative Management at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax is once again launching a new Executive Education Course in conjunction with NCBA CLUSA’s 2021 Cooperative IMPACT Conference. “Operationalizing the Cooperative Identity – Strategy to Practice” will be held virtually October 20-21 from 10 am-3 pm EST.
This course will examine all aspects of the cooperative identity while providing you with concepts, tools and examples. You will broaden your understanding of the deeply rooted links between your values-based enterprise model and the International Cooperative Alliance’s Statement on the Cooperative Identity. While studying the connections among cooperative values, principles and enterprise model, you will finish the course with a rich set of examples, plus more knowledge of the diversity of the cooperative model in practice. The course participants and content will span governance, management and operations perspectives.
Presented by the International Centre for Co-operative Management at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, this course is facilitated by Karen Miner, Managing Director of the International Centre for Co-operative Management; and Dr. Sonja Novkovic, cooperative economist, Academic Director of the International Centre for Co-operative Management and chair of the International Cooperative Alliance’s Committee on Cooperative Research. The course includes key presentations by Fred Freundlich (LANKI, University of Mondragon) and Erbin Crowell, a graduate of the Centre’s Master of Management, Co-operatives and Credit Unions, Executive Director of the Neighboring Food Co-op Association and immediate past chair of NCBA CLUSA’s Board of Directors.
“Operationalizing the Cooperative Identity – Strategy to Practice” is available for $200 as both a stand-alone item and an additional item when you register for the 2021 Cooperative IMPACT Conference. When registering, you have the opportunity to select the course, the conference, or both.
