Cooperative Leadership Events

A CLE is a 2/4 day workshop to survey and train the managers, leaders and members of agricultural cooperatives, and to facilitate exchanges and debates with key policymakers. The format and content of the CLEs is based on the "Cooperative Life Cycle Framework" by the University of Missouri, and it is accredited by the AMEA Global Alliance.
