My vision would not be a predetermined one; only that “we are stronger together”. The rest has to be worked on together. Fcl must figure out a way to get real input from each member Co-op so that the future vision can be figured out jointly and so that concerns that each co-op has will be addressed while going forward. Input and real involvement is key to getting co-ops on side. There need to be some areas of flexibility such as buying some local products and having local promotions.n the way forward.

“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.”
