Cooperative Resources

Valuable tools to keep your cooperative strong

North Dakota Farmers Union has a free Co-op Handbook that we think you will find helpful. It covers everything from how to read a co-op financial statement to responsibilities of co-op members, employees and directors.

If you would like hard copies for your cooperative, email Matt Perdue or call 800-366-6338.
