Advanced Certified Business Advisor at New York Small Business Development Center
Student in Level I, Cooperative Leadership Certification Program (2020)

“The CLCP course allowed me the opportunity to hone my understanding and experiences of cooperative and democratic governance and leadership that I’ve internalized over decades of participation; while also providing me with new models and templates of autonomous interdependence and accountability which I perceive as a constant and major failing of many group processes and participants.”

– Frank Cetera on the Cooperative Leadership Certification Program (CLCP)
