Retail Alliance members are entitled to a single CROps scholarship with a $100 refundable deposit required. Scholarships are limited to 10 on the Southside and 10 on the Peninsula.

Two individuals from a single member business can take the program together for a single $100 deposit. No more than two individuals from any member business can attend under the RA member benefit. If more than two individuals from a member business wish to attend CROps, the third person would need to pay full CROps tuition ($495). All individuals from a single business will work together on a single business plan and present that business plan as a team during the Minnow Bucket.

If you are interested in taking CROps, 2021 enrollment is now open for retail owners looking to provide professional development for their manager, keyholder or themselves. Once again it will be completely virtual with classes held on Monday evenings. Dates are scheduled for March 1 through mid June 2021.
