Abstract

The study was conducted to determine the satisfaction of agricultural cooperative members, the relationship between the demographic characteristics of the members and their viewpoints on being important members of agricultural cooperatives in Igdir province. The survey data were obtained from 133 members selected randomly from 3726 cooperative members on the basis of Simple Coincidental Exemplification method and exposed to binary logistic regression analysis. In the study designed as two models, only a binary dependent variable is "organization protects the benefits of the producer"(coded as yes and no). Independent variables in Models 1 and 2 are demographic variables and items of the ideas about the organization, respectively. In the study, the benefits of the members, the concept of the organization’s being reliable, conducting trainings for its members, and the idea of the cooperative members was estimated. The members of the cooperatives must be encouraged by training, advising, and collaborating researches to visit the cooperatives more often and to be interested in the activities. The young population should be motivated to play an active role in the organization so that a sustainable cooperative system could be maintained in the region.
