One of the great benefits of being a member of the Tennessee Council of Cooperatives is the fact that you have the opportunity to expose your new, seasoned, or in between employees to the unique cooperative world from a classroom prospective. That being said it is time to register your folks for the 2013 TCC Employee Training Workshop which is to be held on Thursday, Aug. 22, at the TECA office on Spence Lane. You certainly can’t beat the price: only $75 per person, and that includes all instructional materials and lunch.
Attached is a copy of the brochure, which includes this year’s program line-up along with the registration form. You can also register by visiting the Tennessee Council of Cooperatives website at www.tennesseecouncilofcoops.org. Our program lineup includes Dr. Bob Cohen, who has spent more than two decades educating people about cooperatives. His reputation definitely precedes him as far as teaching the course. Bob, an ex officio member of the TCC board, is recognized as one of the country’s top authorities on cooperatives, and the way he teaches basic co-op principles and philosophy puts him in a class of his own. We are also honored to have the current Commissioner of Agriculture, Julius Johnson who is the past COO of the Tennessee Farm Bureau to address our group at this year’s luncheon. So please get the word out among your employees about this year’s workshop as soon possible because we are limited in the amount of space for attendees.
Registrants can send a check with the forms or, if you choose, the TCC will be glad to invoice them after the workshop. A block of 25 rooms has been reserved for the night of Wednesday, August 21, at the Holiday Inn Express Nashville Airport which is located at 1111 Airport Center Dr, Nashville,TN 37214. Their phone number is (615) 883-1366 and the rate $89; rooms are being held under TCC Workshop. Continuing education units (CEUs) can be earned by participants from electric cooperatives and other types of co-ops.
