Young Leaders Conference
2020 Attendees at the Young Leaders Conference on tour.
The Tennessee Council of Cooperatives (TCC) is a non-profit organization established to promote “the cooperative way of business” through education and promotion of all types of cooperatives.
The Annual Young Leaders Conference provides cooperatives across the state the opportunity to educate young leaders regarding the benefits of cooperative business. TCC works hard to build a foundation of appreciation and support for existing cooperatives among conference participants. The Annual Young Leaders Conference is a combined effort of the TCC and the Tennessee Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers.
Those who attend this conference are exposed to ideas and information the may enable them to add value to their own businesses, from new niche cooperatives with others in their communities, and meet the challenges of the future with cooperative marketing innovations.
All TCC member organizations may sponsor a couple(s) or person(s) that are under 40 years of age, interested member(s) of a cooperative and someone who will benefit from the educational experience.
Anyone interested in being considered as a delegate to the Young Leaders Conference may complete and submit a YLC Delegate Interest Form.
