The Business of Being a Co-op Board

Full-Day Workshop (GV-1)

Good governance is the cornerstone of a successful co-op. When we don’t get governance right, we put everything at risk. But what does governance mean? How can Boards of Directors provide strategic and principled leadership in their co-op?

In this workshop, we won’t talk about the day-to-day work of being a board member. Instead, we’ll learn about the personal rewards and value of providing principled leadership, what governance is and how to get it right.

This workshop covers the following:

  • governance vs. management in your co-op
  • the good governance test
  • creating organizational structures that work
  • addressing the barriers to good governance
  • electing good directors
  • succeeding as a director and board member
  • effective members’ meetings
  • the role of the chair
  • diversity, inclusion, harassment and bullying in the co-op setting
