Keep your co-op moving forward
Once your co-op is planned and incorporated, that’s when the real fun (and work) begins. This is when your board will develop policies and procedures, recruit members, create a budget, find funds, and hold meetings.
For insight into all of these things and more, you can find resources on The Co-op Creator under “Up and Running”. You’ll find guidance, templates, and samples you can use and adapt to suit your own co-op’s goals and needs.
For a new board that wants more hands-on training about their role, we offer the Board Basics Workshop. Our governance expert offers this 2-hour workshop to work personally with your co-op’s board on governance basics and challenges specific to your group.
And for any questions your board has as you get started, our team is here to help. Contact us any time.
PLEASE NOTE: We work in Canada’s western provinces. So, currently, we only offer services to co-operative businesses in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia. If you are outside this region, you can still access our free resources on the Co-op Creator.
