Membership Terminations – WEBINAR

The easiest way to deal with membership terminations is to implement strategies that help to avoid them! That’s where this workshop will start. However there are times when your co-op board has to terminate a membership for the well-being of the co-op and the other members.

Come along to our online workshop to:

  • Learn about the basic legal framework,
  • Be able to identify the conditions for successful membership terminations,
  • Review the necessary steps and procedures with accompanying forms and templates, and
  • Be able to ask questions about specific situations.

Legal Responsibilities for Directors – WEBINAR

  • How do the duty of care and the duty of loyalty impact on good governance and principled leadership in our housing co-ops?
  • What does “acting in the best interest of the co-op” really mean?
  • What is a conflict of interest and how do we navigate those grey areas when it’s not so clear?

Join us for a close look at where principle meets reality. We’ll look at some tough examples and explore some best practices for handling them.

What Makes a Good Board? – WEBINAR

The best portable workshop for a newly elected board: packed full with the basic knowledge all housing co-op directors need as well as tools for how to work effectively to ensure good governance, sound management and principled leadership.

A co-op’s success or failure as a business and as a community depends on a good effective board.

A good board understands:

  • its legal obligations;
  • how the co-op’s governing documents guide decision-making and actions;
  • its role and the role of the general membership, staff, and committees — in governing and managing the co-op;
  • the most common mistakes and how to avoid them;
  • what it will take to be a co-op with a sustainable future.

6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
