5. Building Board Succession

MAC-Ed delivers the Director Education course, which is targeted and specific to member needs.  Both management and new and existing board members require core education that explains their roles, duties and responsibilities. MAC-Ed’s course curriculum is diverse, flexible and tailored for each session. Sessions expound upon strategy, financial oversight, governance and succession planning, specific to member cooperatives.

This class will help attendees understand the complexities of the co-op director’s role in establishing and casting the vision; while balancing the vested interests of the member-owner role.
