Co-op Governance

Governance Services
The success of co-op businesses depends on the effectiveness with which directors discharge their roles and responsibilities.

For the first time, in 2014, a comprehensive governance code especially for agricultural co-ops was drafted which is available for co-op members, directors and managers. SAOS and Co-operatives UK worked jointly on the code, drawing on experiences of both organisations to produce the publication.

We have also produced a booklet giving guidance on governance best practice for directors.
