Trainings & Opportunities

Governance Training Series for New Directors

Outstanding board leadership is a critical component of being a successful cooperative business. Great boards don’t just happen, they are built and honed. Governance training is critical to developing a productive and forward-thinking board and ensuring a positive relationship between the board and management.

Directors have many duties and responsibilities. Every director has a unique combination of skills, expertise, and blind spots to the board room. The stronger the individual directors are, the stronger the board will be as a whole.

This training is designed for new directors from all types and sectors of cooperatives.

Who should attend: Newly elected directors and directors who have not received formal cooperative board training.
