eXtension launches Web resource for cooperatives

Cooperatives Community of Practice

eXtension (pronounced E-extension) is launching a new online community of practice (CoP) for cooperatives, businesses jointly owned and democratically managed by their members. Members of existing cooperatives as well as people interested in creating, managing or joining cooperatives will find decision tools, case studies and other research-based information on eXtension, said Madeline Schultz, an ISU Extension specialist who is the Cooperatives CoP co-leader.

Schultz said Iowa State and partnering land-grant universities are offering information on the cooperative business model as a way to grow and strengthen communities.
