ACCC Advisory Council History

The Arthur Capper Cooperative Center has been fortunate to have so many different Advisory Council members who have been able to serve for a number of years. While these members gave stability to the Center, new members were constantly added who brought new ideas to enhance the Center’s educational program.

The Center is grateful for the advice and expertise of its members and acknowledges the contributions they have made to the organization. Because of their support, the Center is able to continue its growth and looks forward to increasing its activities to further cooperative education.
