Through these workshops, you will learn best practices for cooperative finances, management, and incorporation. You will walk away with better tools to strengthen your existing cooperative, turn your business into a cooperative or start a new one.

The NYC Network of Worker Coops, (NYCNOWC), as the trade association for worker-cooperatives in our city, has convened a Training Collective. We are 14 cooperative professionals with over 200 years of collective experience in cooperative membership, training, management, and development in cooperatives and support organizations. Our goal is to teach and promote best practices from our experiences to businesses and start-ups to those who want to work according to cooperative principles.
