No matter where you are in your startup journey, practicing good governance and evolving it as your co-op’s needs change will help your group work more effectively together, have more fun, and help you make better decisions. Being good at governance will also position you to be a better employer and attract better GM candidates. This half-day workshop provides practical and tested ideas, templates and processes that you can use to set your co-op on the path to effective governance. We’ll cover the Four Pillars of Cooperative Governance, your first set of Working Agreements, the transition to using policies and steps you can take to help new board members get up to speed and support established board members too! This workshop is open to all and will include opportunities to try out new ideas and practice cooperative governance with other participants. Come learn from and be part of the wisdom in the room!
