Montana Cooperative Development Center is heading your way! Within the 2020-21 work plan, MCDC created a program to showcase Montana Cooperatives and host workshops on cooperative development. With COVID-19 still lingering, these cooperative days are being reimagined, focusing on more one-on-one interactions and smaller, more impactful gatherings and discussions.
Starting in April of 2021, MCDC Director Tracy McIntyre and Program Director Davey Madison will be dedicating time throughout the summer and into the fall, to visit cooperatives across the State. Along the way, they will be working with the Cooperative Development Specialist network (see map below) to lead community discussions all across the State on how the cooperative business model can be addressing economic and community needs. From childcare to housing to grocery to food development to rural news to workforce development and more, MCDC is here to help communities find local solutions using their own resources.
Want us to visit your cooperative or your Montana community? Email Tracy or Davey and they will work with you to visit your community!
