Great Opportunity Announced for Teens Ages 16-19

The Virginia Cooperative Council just posted their 2012 conference brochure.  Teens ages 16-19 as of July 2012 can apply to attend this educational event, held annually at Graves Mountain Lodge.  Conference dates are March 30-April 1, a Friday through Sunday.  At the event, teens will learn about the cooperative business framework, complete group activities, compete for a chance to attend the national NICE contest, and enjoy social opportunities, such as a dance.  Teens from across the state are eligible to attend; we can help find a sponsoring cooperative for you to interview before the conference.  Orange-Madison Coop, Farm Credit, and Rappahannock Electric are just three examples of businesses who have contacted us before.  To view the brochure, click HERE.
