      Unless there is a plan in place to ensure payment plan to pay off debt is not a good to take on, otherwise the company would survive

      Having two governance structure would require a clear plan of communication to its members, otherwise it would total confuse the membership whose their representative

      I beieve our organization is viewed legit by our members, if the members felt weren’t meeting our service and support the membership lets us know, during district conference call, in person meeting, annual meeting and one on one Presidents touch base.

      Thanks, Mary! Can you tell me more about the one-on-one Presidents touch base? Is this a regular process or program?

“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.”

Janet Taylor (Corporate Secretary)

“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.”

“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.”
