Current Governance Issues in Policy Development (BLC #929.1)
1-1/2 Skill Builder Credits

Policies set the standard for board behavior. Attendees learn to view policies as proactive tools to establish a standard of board behavior required for governance in today's electric cooperative boardroom. This course revisits the fundamentals of governance and the roles policies play in contributing to effective governance.

Participants take part in discussions about current issues facing rural electric cooperatives and how the governance function contributes to the cooperative and adds value. As these issues are discussed and debated, a sample set of policies are used to show examples of policies relevant to addressing today's governance issues.

Key topics:
  • Discussion of current issues facing rural electric cooperative boards, and how policies are coming into play
  • A suggested standardized policy structure and format
  • A successful approach for reviewing and updating your cooperative's governing policies
