Another new employee driven initiative premieres at Central Prairie Co-op!

We are excited to announce the creation of our Business Development Committee. Its mission is to uncover new and unique business opportunities to benefit the membership. The committee will meet regularly to brainstorm ideas and advance those that prove to have merit. Our CEO Mike Corbus said about the formation of the committee: “The success of any good company is achieved thru the energy and talent of its ranks. We have a lot of that on hand at Central Prairie and intend to empower the employees to have more ownership in the cooperative’s advancement. You can bet there will be other opportunities available for the employees to participate in. The Business Development Committee will take approved projects through the entire due diligence process. They will learn about and be responsible for conducting Feasibility Studies, Return on Investment and Cash Flow Analysis, logistics and staffing considerations, and general Project Management.”

8 employees comprise the new committee and have a diverse set of skillsets and tenure with the co-op. We can’t wait to see what they come up with. “It’s all about bringing new value to our producers and giving employees the voice and professional encouragement to make that happen. That’s why we’re here”, said Mr. Corbus.
