On Co-op is excited to reveal its plans to host their first ever “Governance Forum” for co-operatives, coming to you this fall!
Inspired by the highly successful Directors' Forum (https://www.ontario.coop/directors_forum), which provides professional development, education and networking opportunities for Ontario's credit union and caisses populaires board directors, the first Governance Forum will focus on board directors leading large co-operatives in Ontario. The sessions will be designed to help those with little to no experience in their role, and elevate them to a level where they are capable of having input in the strategic direction and decision-making of a multi-million dollar co-operative organization.
On Co-op aspires to host this event annually and include programming for co-operatives of all types and sizes.
The first conference will take place on Thursday, October 11 and the morning of Friday, October 12 at the Courtyard by Marriott, Downtown Toronto. There will be a joint session for the delegates of both the Governance Forum and the Directors' Forum on the Friday morning, where co-operative and credit union Directors can share their common issues and challenges, while developing opportunities to collaborate and work through them.
Registration opens May 1st online. A small block of rooms have been set aside for delegates at the group rate of $189 + HST/night (standard room), or $229 + HST per night (standard, double room, which will be available on a first come/first serve basis. Stay tuned for more details coming soon!
