Cooperative Training Classes
Board Training is More Important Than Ever
Cooperative housing Board of Directors training is more important than ever in today’s rapidly changing environment. As co-op members elect their Board of Directors to oversee and protect their investment, it is crucial that these board members are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively manage the community.
One key aspect of this training is staying current with recent trends in cooperative law, finance, and operations. This helps prevent problems that could potentially increase exposure to lawsuits and other issues. In this way, training acts as a form of insurance to prevent problems before they occur, rather than after.
The MAHC Annual Conferences have become a vital resource for cooperative housing education and training. These conferences feature instructors with diverse expert knowledge in the cooperative field, ranging from management agents and lawyers to accountants and experienced cooperators. They provide insight and expertise on nearly any topic related to cooperative housing, including fair housing, legal updates, effective meeting management, and marketing strategies.
It’s important to remember that training is like a muscle – it must be constantly challenged or else it weakens. The education and training of directors and co-op members are under greater challenges than ever before, so it’s essential to take advantage of the resources that MAHC offers now and in the future.
In the end, the training of Board members is an investment in a multi-million-dollar corporation, and members have a fiduciary duty to protect that investment. By obtaining the necessary training and education, co-op members can rest assured that their community is in good hands. The training of board members is an important responsibility for the community, as it is not only protecting the investment of the board members but also that of dozens if not hundreds of other members in the community.
