Here's what Co-op Grocer Network does best: facilitate the sharing and development of resources among the food co-op community.
The list of Discussion Groups below mirror email listserves currently used by the CGN community. This platform is designed to create a stronger community among users, better capture our discussions as content, and enhance our Library.
To participate in Discussion Groups you must have a current user account created by your CGN Account Manager. Once your account is set up and you are logged in YOU (not your account manager) may complete the Discussion Group Subscription form. Please see Help section for further guidance.
Though we encourage open and cross-Group participation, please respect and participate appropriately. The ability to create more exclusive and ad hoc Discussion Groups is planned for later this year, but be aware, CGN cannot be held responsible for the security of any proprietary or sensitive content on this site. Private discussions should be taken off-line.

This TED Talk by Clay Shirkey called How Cognitive Surplus Will Change the World illustrates our intent.
Note: As we transition to web-based Discussion Groups, email listserve groups will remain active thru August, 2013.
