Introducing the CHS Center for Cooperative Growth

INVER GROVE, HEIGHTS. (Friday January 25, 2013) /PRNewswire/ — CHS is pleased to introduce the CHS Center for Cooperative Growth, an online platform that gathers and shares diverse viewpoints from agribusinesses, independent agricultural producers, academia and other leaders to foster greater success among America’s cooperatives.

The online platform launched in October 2012, features a primary cooperative topic addressed through four perspectives and invites audiences to participate through online polls and a blog.

“We hope this online resource will break complex cooperative topics into informative content to help cooperative leaders learn and grow,” says Lynn Foth, vice president of market development and strategic alignment for CHS. Using the resources on this site, visitors will be better informed about the choices their cooperatives have, to grow and remain profitable into the future.

This quarter, ag cooperative expert Michael Boland, Ph.D., professor of agricultural economics, University of Minnesota will talk about equity management.
