If anyone is interested in more about Enron – the smartest guys in the room documentary. The issues permeated throughout the entire system from Enron Board / management even employees to the auditors. There was so much collusion and no one with a loud enough voice to topple the apple cart. The complexity (by design) of the reporting and subsidiaries made it almost impossible for the board to have proper oversight. That should have been a red flag in itself. likely the board members were making money from the stocks so they didn’t feel a need to make waves. Sorry I missed this thread when I posted my responses. I will make sure I watch for this on the next one so it is easier to read each other’s responses!


“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.”

“The Good Governance Matters Course was a valuable course. I shared it with the [Arctic Co-operatives Limited] Senior Leadership Team. If it ever comes up again, I highly recommend others to take it.”

“The online course, Good Governance Matters was very informative, easy to navigate and discussed issues relevant to our needs as a Board of Directors. This course is a great tool for boards to build their knowledge to become strong, strategic boards.”

Lori Sanders (President)

“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.”


“This course was highly enjoyable, and relevant to working in not only the co-op space, but with any group that needs to make decisions.”
