This episode kicks off our four-part series on co-operative governance with Co-operatives First’s Executive Director Audra Krueger. Kyle, Aasa, and Audra talk about why people join co-op boards, how to find good board members, and why board governance is about more than a love of bylaws and egg salad sandwiches – though those may be the best parts.
