Cooperative Law for Community Organizations
Co-ops are becoming a popular alternative to traditional corporate or nonprofit structures for some sustainable community groups.  Many farm, food, and retail  groups have used the cooperative structure to create an owner structure that fits their particular needs and gives stakeholders an ownership and management interests in the organization.  

Come and learn about the legal considerations when deciding whether a Cooperative structure is for your group.  

This seminar will answer the following questions:

- What is a cooperative?
- How is it different from a for-profit or nonprofit corporation?
- What are some of the distinctive legal considerations that cooperatives have?
- What are worker coops and what are the employment law considerations with coops?
- What are the capitalization structure options?
- Are there special tax rules for Coops?
- How do you govern a coop?

Join us for an interesting seminar and discussion on Coops and how coops fit in the changing landscape of social enterprise organizations.
