Is your co-op governance up to par?

| Education, Governance |

The news of MEC’s sale to a US corporate investment firm has raised many questions amongst the co-operative community, most of them centering on how a co-operative could be sold without engaging its members. Given there’s been little public information available around the conversations that transpired around the MEC boardroom, it would be speculation to comment on how these decisions were made (for BCCA’s position on this, please see our press release). Regardless, we know that good governance is critical to the success and longevity of any co-operative or credit union. Here are some resources that might help.
