Education & Leadership Conference

The 2022 Education and Leadership Conference is scheduled for:

October 28-29 at the Caribe Royale in Orlando, FL

Attendee Registration is $125 per person for early registration and includes most meals and all conference materials.



For the past 35 years, the Florida Council of Cooperatives has sponsored an Annual Cooperative Education and Leadership Conference. Formerly known as the Young Farmer Couples Conference on Cooperatives. The weekend is full of renowned speakers on topics from leadership to cooperative structures.  The program is designed to help individuals understand how cooperatives can serve them, and how they can take on a leadership role in their local cooperatives.

Conference attendees can learn about:

  • The importance of cooperatives
  • How cooperatives function and have an opportunity to hear from panels regarding different types of cooperatives.
  • Organizational procedures and responsibilities of cooperatives and their boards.

The state’s cooperative community is very proud of the many people whose lives have been touched by FCC programs and who now hold places of leadership in state government, cooperative and agricultural organizations.
