The Cooperative Sectors days give a borad overview of how we define cooperative sectors and what elements of the business model, ownership structure, and membership can be considered as we describe sectors a co-op may belong to.  Following the overview, we’ll more deeply explore five common cooperative sectors to better understand what distinguishes them.  People registering for Cooperative Sectors Parts I & II should also plan on taking Co-ops 101: The Basics Day on August 10th.
