Recognizing a key need to support ongoing efforts in cooperative leadership development and research, NECC leadership established the Cooperative Leadership Fund. The fund is a donor advised fund managed by the Cornell University Foundation.
COOPERATIVE LEADERSHIP FUND
The Northeast Cooperative Council (NECC) working with the Cornell Cooperative Enterprise Program remains a regional and national leader in developing and promoting quality educational programs for cooperative board members, management teams, employees, and professionals working with cooperative businesses. NECC and CEP activities have focused on improving the effectiveness of boards of directors, improving leadership skills of both current and future leaders, and improving the understanding of the cooperative enterprise among a range of other key audiences and stakeholders.
