Education

Co-operatives provide education and training for their members, elected representatives, managers, and employees so they can contribute effectively to the development of their co-operatives. They inform the general public, particularly young people and opinion leaders, about the nature and benefits of co-operation. SACHA offers two types of workshops, custom and scheduled.

Custom Workshops

Custom workshops are designed to meet the needs of the co-op requesting the workshop and can be on any topic. These workshops can be scheduled for daytime or evening sessions. Some topic examples are listed below:

• Board of Directors
• Goal Setting • Community Building • Chairing and Recording • Financial Management
• Marketing • Maintenance • Conflict Management • Board & Staff Relationships • New Member Selection


Scheduled Workshops

Scheduled workshops examine specific topics and are usually offered at the Education Event or the Annual General Meeting. On occasion, a Basic Board of Directors' workshop and/or an Advanced Board of Directors' workshop is scheduled. Workshop fees are not refundable unless a workshop has to be cancelled by SACHA due to insufficient registrations. For more information about workshops, please contact SACHA at (403) 233-0969.
