Engaging the Next Generation of Co-op Members
We know our cooperative model resonates with Millennial’s and Gen Z’s. How do we use that to our advantage to build a strong co-op membership for the future? This session highlighted not only successful programs targeted millennial and future members, but covered questions you should ask before you begin. Once you’ve established a program, I showed how to grow that relationship and gain even more loyalty and satisfaction from a different demographic …… their parents. If you’re looking to engage youth (or any segment of your membership really), this program is sure to be an idea starter.
"I learned how to use my network. I found my first job out of college because of a sorority sister. I also learned the value of groups on Facebook and LinkedIn. They are a great resource. Once you make connections there, they are usually willing to make introductions and referrals.”
"Experience was a huge roadblock for me. No one wanted to hire me without 3-5 years of experience for an "entry-level" position. I had searched for two years before using these tactics. Now I have a job in my field."
