What is good governance? Co-operatives across Canada struggle with the issue of governance and how to effectively make decisions and implement policies that benefit their organizations. This webinar will present a model of good governance for co-operatives and offer insights into organizational policy being practiced in the co-op sector. Examples will focus on rural Canadian co-operatives and the practical and policy implications of strategic decisions.
