Creating an Environment for Co-op Growth: A Legislative and Policy Update Webinar
This webinar is a part of the Appalachia Cooperates Initiative facilitated by the CFAES Center for Cooperatives at Ohio State.

The past few years have seen a growth in cooperative development. Disappointment with traditional business models, search for innovation, support for local (development, control, ownership), financial and health crises – these are a few of the factors that have led to the creation of new cooperatives. In some states, these forces have also resulted in the adoption of different policies and even legislation to support cooperatives. Many of these cooperatives are multi-stakeholder, are worker-owned (but not always employee-owned), and accept investors (and some allow them to vote). Join us and Jacqueline Radebaugh to discuss some of these innovations in cooperative development. We’ll talk about limited cooperative associations, aspects of worker-ownership relating to immigrant and employee status, and why Colorado is becoming the Delaware of Cooperative Law™.

Jul 1, 2021 03:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
