Cooperative Principle #5—Education, Training and Information
Posted: October 19, 2015
Today we are highlighting Cooperative Principle #5—Education, Training and Information.
Cooperatives provide education and training for members, elected representatives, managers and employees so they can contribute effectively to the development of the cooperative.
Credit unions place particular importance on educational opportunities for their volunteer directors, and financial education for their members and the public, especially the nation’s youth. Credit unions also recognize the importance of ensuring the general public and policy makers are informed about the nature, structure and benefits of cooperatives.
