The Mid America Cooperative Council (MACC) is a multi-state, non-profit trade association founded in January 2003, by a group of like-minded individuals. These individuals understood the impact cooperative principles have on the sustainability of co-ops, yet they began to see a widespread erosion of co-op knowledge among co-op communities. All sectors of cooperatives were engaged in establishing MACC. The founders also wanted to address the lack of unique co-op educational resources available in the Midwestern region.

 MAC-Ed’s award-winning Co-ops101 education program is a must for new and tenured employees. This class describes the history, culture and nuances of the cooperative business model. Each employee will leave this program with a solid understanding of the ownership, equity-patronage and member representation structure of their cooperative. The participant will be able to explain their cooperative’s advantage to members and the general public.For more information, please visit http://youtu.be/P_x2-n8uHU4.
