Governance Challenges of the Evolving Distribution Cooperative (BLC #971.1)
1-1/2 Skill Builder Credits

The distribution cooperative marketplace is changing faster today than at any time since our foundational period. Distribution cooperatives' relationship with their members are transforming due to changing member preferences, new business models, new technologies and third-party applications. This course focuses on how these changes call for different ways of thinking, data collection and analysis at the board level if boards are to fulfill their oversight responsibilities and strategic vision.

Key topics:
  • Recognize the drivers of the changing industry landscape at large.
  • Discuss how the evolving energy landscape impacts governance and the way a board performs its oversight function.
  • Envision where they would like to see their co-op be in 5–7 years
  • Identify specific data necessary to inform a recommended course of action.
