Assessing Governance: Taking a Continuous Improvement Approach to Governing Your Co-op (BLC #905.1)
1-1/2 Skill Builder Credits

Putting a governance assessment on your board’s to do list may be a good idea. Similar to a board performance evaluation, a governance assessment is a thoughtful and thorough review of governance bylaws, policies, practices and legal requirements. Doing this from time to time can help ensure that your co-op is keeping up with evolving member preferences and changes in the law. This course is designed to walk directors or boards through a governance assessment process.

Key Topics:
  • Recognizing the purpose and value of a governance assessment.
  • Analyzing the benefits and risks of various governance practices using case studies and real world cooperative scenarios.
  • Strategizing ways to implement the learning from the classroom to discussion and action in the boardroom.
