Session materials from “Ongoing Member Training (Roundtable),” presented by Nola Warner at NASCO Institute 2016.
Cooperatives, especially student co-ops, are often described as revolving doors because their members can be very transient. As a result, it is important to ensure that everybody is on the same page. Does your co-op have a new member orientation? What about training for your managers and officers? Do you partner with local groups for additional educational support? What sort of resources have you created for your members? This roundtable discussion will focus on creating and maintaining effective, ongoing member training programs.
