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 operations, many co-operatives and agro-allied ventures have failed. Many others are either crisis ridden or bankrupt. To successfully manage cooperative and agro-allied ventures, their management committees and indeed their 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 Co-operatives and Agro-Allied Ventures.
