The Board has several key responsibilities, among these are:

  • Setting the Society’s overall objectives and strategy – and monitoring progress towards our goals

  • Ensuring we operate in line with the Co-operative values and principles, as set out by the International Co-operative Alliance. You can find out more about these by clicking here

To deliver their key responsibilities, the Board has a set of guiding principles (the framework and expectations for the way directors interact) and a formal schedule of matters reserved for the Board (outlining the duties and responsibilities that must be decided by them).
