Are you a business owner who is thinking of selling your business, but wants to plan for your business’ longevity in the community, the continued employment of your employees, and leaving behind a legacy?  Succession planning is how you can achieve these goals.  When thinking about succession planning, there are several options to consider.  One option that we will explore during this Hybrid (In-Person and Live Webinar) workshop is how you can convert your business into a cooperative… what’s called the “Co-op Conversion.”

Join us Tuesday, May 21, 2024 from 10 am to 11 am for “Succession Planning: Exploring Cooperative Ownership Options.” This enlightening workshop is presented by Margaret Lund – an expert in cooperative development. This one-hour workshop focuses on leveraging “Co-op Conversations” as a powerful tool for business succession planning. Margaret will guide attendees through the nuances of converting businesses into cooperatives – a strategy that ensures continuity; empowers employees; and preserves local business ecosystems.  This workshop is ideal for business owners considering succession solutions, business advisors, and anyone interested in learning more about cooperative business models.
