Michigan State University
The MSU Director Education Program takes place on January 20-21, 2014 at the Henry Center at Michigan State University, in Lansing, Michigan. The program 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.
- Legal Issues for Cooperatives
- Leading Cooperatives from the Inside Out
- Cooperative Plans for Building Directors
Did you know co-op directors can be held liable for losses occurring through inattention to the business or willful violation of their duty to protect the cooperative? Today’s global business climate is becoming increasingly more complex, with new regulations coming down the pike at a rapid pace. Courts have held that, as a matter of law, directors must be informed of reasonably available information needed to make sound business decisions.
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.
