Cooperative Development

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 and for more information on Cooperatives and how to form them.
