Who is it for?

Co-operative Directors play a key role in every co-op. It's important that every single person within your organisation, no matter what their role, understands how the role of Director fits into the wider co-operative structure. Anyone new to the role of Director (or even a long standing Director in need of a refresher) will get a lot out of this course.

What will I learn?

Directors need strong business and committee skills to be effective, plus a commitment to ongoing training and development. People who get involved as Directors should be proud of the fact they're making a difference in their community. This course will explore this key role, covering:

  • The core roles and responsibilities of a Director
  • How they interact with other roles within a co-op’s overall structure
  • Legal duties and additional responsibilities 
  • The role of the Chair
  • Conflicts of interest
  • The difference between a Director and a manager
