There are lots of videos out there that can help people learn about co-operatives. In this blog post, we’ll look at four types of videos that can help explain what co-operatives are, how they are different from other forms of business, what the co-operative principles are and what they mean, as well as a history of a couple of co-ops.

So you know that member engagement in a co-operative is an important and needed focus area. But what the heck should you actually do? This blog post provides a few ideas for members of co-operatives, and a few ideas for co-operatives of what actions both can take to increase member engagement.

Many co-operatives feel like they need to engage their members more. The challenge of how to engage members affects both new and mature co-operatives. Often, member engagement has been viewed as having many members participating in a co-operative’s annual general meeting. While AGM participation is one way to engage members, there are many, many other methods to ensuring that a co-operative and its members are communicating and connected, and that members’ and the co-op’s needs are being met.
