Leslie Kaufman, President and CEO of the Kansas Cooperative Council, joined us on Thursday’s Ag Issues program. The discussion focused on October as National Co-op month and also recognized as Co-op month in Kansas. The 2017 theme for Co-op month is “Co-ops Commit”…to impact, to members and to community. Kaufman discussed the activities that the Kansas Cooperative Council will be doing during the month of October. She also looked why Co-ops are such a vital part of local communities across Kansas.
As part of the celebration of National Co-op month in October, they’ve issued the #COOPSELFIE challenge. Snap a selfie at your cooperative and share how you are committing to your employees, members and community. You can share via Facebook, Twitter, or email.
