Foundations for Board Governance - Cooperative Board Leadership 101
Create a solid foundation for shared understanding. CBL 101 is for newly elected directors, board candidates, general managers (GM), and GM successors, exploring cooperative governance, financial condition of the co-op, roles and responsibilities, and co-op principles and values. The day-long event provides a strong base overview of: cooperative governance; financial understanding using the balance sheet; cooperative principles, values, and history; and legal roles and responsibilities.
Build CBL 101 into your co-op’s orientation plan to maintain a shared and lasting foundation. This session provides value both in the short-term, for those who attend each session, and in the long-term, supporting continuity for your board as directors come and go.
Who should attend: While especially helpful for those new to co-op boards, this is also a great refresher for seasoned directors and general managers. Candidates and successors are also encouraged to attend, to build capacity.
