The CBLD team invites you to check out the Strategic Co-op Seminar videos in the Cooperative Café. The Co-op Café is an invaluable section of the CBLD Library that offers a collection of video presentations from recent Strategic Co-op Seminars. This is an area of the Library that is always growing, and March was a particularly fruitful month for these Seminars so the Co-op Café’s selection has grown considerably!
The 2013 Strategic Co-op Seminars focus on Growing Our Co-ops, and participants address two of the most powerful questions in the food co-op sector today:
- Why does growth matter? What might it look like if we are successful?
- How do we as leaders get our community engaged, aligned and participating?
At the Strategic Co-op Seminars, conversations are highly interactive and focused. Using the World Café conference format, participants contribute to small group conversations inspired by the speakers and framed by a few powerful questions. All presentations made at the seminars are now available here in the CBLD Library.
Check out this month’s featured video, then peruse as you will! The videos are organized thematically by content type. We encourage you to browse them on your own or together with your co-op board and management staff, and use them to start conversations in your own community.
Special thanks to the National Cooperative Grocers Association (NCGA) for sponsoring the seminars.
