Quentin Burdick Center for Cooperatives

QBC Cooperatives logo

North Dakota is home to over 500 cooperatives that include sectors such as electricity, telecommunications, credit unions, finance, and agriculture.  These cooperatives are vital to the state's economy.

The Quentin N. Burdick Center for Cooperatives understands the importance of cooperatives and strives to provide education, research, and outreach that will bring about strengthening the cooperatives' operations and working toward expanding employment and economic opportunities through cooperatives.

While venues have not been secured, the Center plans to host these trainings in Williston and Fargo, North Dakota.
