Some thoughts: -Greed became a driving Force.
The board had lost direction and decisions were no longer guided by mission, vision and values, this led to the cultural erosion.
Being motivated by greed, the majority of the board was not questioning their actions. there needs to be alot of critical thinking when changing priorities and direction. Decisions need to be in line with guiding principles.
There needed to be some not just social but “professional distancing” with their clients because of the nature of their work.

“I thoroughly enjoyed the Good Governance Matters course offered by Co-operatives First. The course provided a solid background on governance generally and specific examples of good governance practices in co-operatives. It is uncommon to find governance training specific to co-operatives so this was refreshing.”

“This course has greatly increased my understanding of what good governance could/should look like and how each part (boards, management, members) plays a vital role in the co-operative’s success.”
