12.6.12 Emerging Business Models: Cooperative Innovation in the New Economy

In this new and expanding global economy, cooperatives are structuring their business organization in innovative ways. This webinar will address the most widely-known emerging cooperative business model, the new generation cooperative, and the legal, tax, and accounting issues they face. It will also address how credit unions are currently formed from a more traditional cooperative model to a more nuanced-one. Lastly, the webinar will assess cooperatives through the lens of the international arena by providing a brief summary of the International Cooperative Alliance’s strategy of the “Blueprint for a Cooperative Decade.”

Participants will learn:

  • What are the economic issues? What led to these recent developments?

  • The legal, accounting and tax implications
  • The government and legislative policy response
