      I live in rural Manitoba, and got my start on a co-op board as a director at Carman Co-op. For the last 8 years I have served on the Board of Directors of FCL, and since 2014, I have also been on the board of The Co-operators. While many people don’t spend much time thinking about co-ops, they have been instrumental in building and maintaining healthy communities, certainly in the west where I live. I look forward to the course and information that helps us develop and strengthen co-op governance.

“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)

Sherwood Co-op

“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.”
