Cooperative societies have become one of the potent strategies for social mobilization for economic emancipation and poverty alleviation. The management of Cooperative Societies and Agro-Allied Ventures differs significantly from other business enterprises. Because of the challenges posed by their uniqueness in terms of formation, management, control and operation, many cooperative societies and agro-allied ventures have failed. Many others are either crisis ridden or bankrupt. To successfully manage cooperative societies and agro-allied ventures, their management committees and staff must be adequately equipped with requisite skills and knowledge of cooperative management. This workshop is therefore designed to equip participants with the capabilities to manage cooperative organizations and agro-allied ventures.
