We have a treasure trove of resources already on hand in the CDS Consulting Co-op Library. The short videos from the 2015 Co-op Cafe series on Thriving in the New Competitive Landscape have been viewed more than 10,000 times, and the 2016 Cafe recordings on Courageous Leadership are just as great - use one to stimulate a conversation at one of your upcoming meetings. Co-ops that participate in CBLD help support the development of many of these resources - thank you on behalf of the thousands of cooperators over the years.
New resources are contributed regularly to the CDS CC Library by our consultants to deliver value to the food co-op sector and assist board leaders and managers with their role. The library is one of the top resources available in the food co-op sector for understanding all of the particulars of good governance, building a successful board-general manger relationship, and easily creating systems from organizational templates. From agenda planning to policy templates, you can find it all in the CDS Consulting Co-op Library.
