Co-operative Management Education Co-operative (CMEC)

Our programs are successful in large part due to the support of the Co-operative Management Education Co-operative (CMEC). CMEC was established in 2001 to support the advancement of co-operative management education in partnership with the International Centre for Co-operative Management at Saint Mary’s University. Over sixty co-operatives and credit union organizations from seven countries contribute expertise, advice, and funding that help us deliver our unique co-operative management education and research programs. Our eleven member board of directors represent co-operatives, education, alumni and individual CMEC members. Membership is open to co-operative organizations, educational institutions and individuals.
