In many worker cooperatives, an elected board is empowered to make most governance decisions through a process outlined in the company’s by-laws. In this module, we will learn how to facilitate governance meetings in order to create, assess and ratify proposals. Students will be introduced to democratic decision-making processes, discuss the function of by-laws in a worker cooperative, learn about meeting facilitation and different models of democratic decision making and simulate the cooperative decision-making process using example scenarios.
Please note: Because of high demand, this workshop is only open to NY residents. Registration does not guarantee admission. Workshop will accommodate up to 50 people; please be sure to arrive promptly to secure your spot.
