Who is it for?

Anyone who is involved with the day-to-day running of a co-op will get a lot out of this course. Governance affects everyone - anyone who wants the co-op to flourish should understand what a well-governed co-op should look like.

What will I learn?

This course is a chance to have a look behind the scenes at how co-ops are run.

Although co-ops face different governance challenges depending on their sector and size there are several key elements of good governance that apply to all co-ops.These key elements help a co-op's governing body to set up and sustain a strong business that can engage everyone involved and react positively to change. Good governance ensures a co-op stays accountable and meets the needs of its members.

Good governance has great consequences. A well-governed co-op will:

  • Know where it's going
  • Be trusted by clients and the public
  • Have a board who are connected to the membership and stakeholders
  • Make good and timely decisions
  • Be sustainable and able to weather crises
