About Co-op 101
Co-op 101 is designed not only to give you a better understanding of cooperatives, but will also help obtain the qualifications for your MCC designation.
Leta Mach, former CCA president and H.E. Klinefelter honoree in 2002, developed this Co-op 101 program. It is based upon the National Cooperative Business Association Co-op 101 Educational Training Program she developed, which was awarded a CCA Best of Class award for Programs and Projects in 2001.
