Event description

Description

The Board is responsible for managing the business of the co-op. It sounds simple, but a co-op’s success or failure as a business and as a community depends on a competent board. Good directors are the cornerstone of good governance.

This 3-hour comprehensive workshop is ideal for both seasoned members of the Board and those considering board service. Guided by best practices of principled leadership, participants will learn everything they need to know to immediately make a valuable contribution as a board member.

When you complete this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Describe the Board’s function and responsibilities
  • Clarify the difference between governance and management and identify the 5-Core Management Standards
  • Explain the distinct roles of the Board, members and staff
  • Identify the board’s accountability and legal obligations with emphasis on the Co-operatives Act and the co-op’s governing documents
  • Outline the components of risk management
  • List the key elements of successful and productive board meetings
