Montana Cooperative Development Center

A key part of the MCDC mission is cooperative education. MCDC staff members and cooperative development specialists share their in-depth knowledge base of cooperatives to equip individuals with the skills needed to operate and manage cooperatives. Workshops, panels, discussion groups, and one-on-one business development sessions are offered throughout Montana. MCDC also offers financial consulting and personal guidance to help customers with each step of forming a successful cooperative.

GNDC provides technical assistance for MCDC through Cooperative Development Specialists.  Contact any of our four Certified Cooperative Development Specialists, or visit  https://mcdc.coop/ and
