Financial Training for Directors (four-part series)
with Brittany Baird & Leslie Watson

This session will help directors better understand their role in financial oversight and evaluating risk and build their confidence in doing that work well, regardless of their experience in business finance. We will explore the different dimensions of financial health, including how to look for both strengths and weaknesses. Topics include:

  • Seeing the story in your co-op’s financial statements
  • Evaluating financial performance in context
  • Setting expectations for financial performance that hit the “sweet spot” with the right mix of information, analysis, and addressing non-compliance or underperformance
  • Understanding the importance of budgeting and planning
  • Knowing how to ask great questions

Sessions will include a mix of instruction and interactive learning. Attendees who complete all four sessions will receive a certificate of completion.

  • Thursday November 4th, 2021 at 7:30pm ET
