October 11, 2019 – U.S. consumers, especially in the northeast, are likely familiar with the Cabot brand in grocery stores or by visiting their stores in Waterbury and Quechee, or their Visitors Center in Cabot. But they might not be as familiar with Cabot’s history as a cooperative, it’s relationship to Agri-Mark, and how it’s structured differently than other dairy producers. Association President Joe Bergeron recently sat down with Marketing SVP Roberta MacDonald to discuss dairy cooperatives and all things Cabot Creamery.

October 4, 2019 – You know members own cooperatives, but what is an employee-owned cooperative? How does it work? How common are they? Why do they exist? Matt Cropp, Co-Executive Director of the Vermont Employee Ownership Center (VEOC), explains all that and more to host Joe Bergeron, President of the Association of Vermont Credit Unions.

June 14, 2019 – AVCU President Joe Bergeron sits down with Blair Wolston, Chair of CUYP Vermont and a member of VSECU’s Financial Services team, who relates his experiences representing Vermont at the first Global Classroom initiative for young professionals.
