WASHINGTON-The National Cooperative Business Association received a grant of $15,000 from the Nationwide Foundation’s George and Gladys Dunlap Cooperative Leadership Fund to conduct a pilot survey of governance practices of Ohio cooperatives. The Ohio Credit Union System has pledged an additional $2,000 to the study. “If we are to grow stronger as a sector,” NCBA President and CEO Paul Hazen said, “we need to address the most pressing education and training issue facing cooperatives and that is co-op democratic governance.” NCBA is partnering with the Mid America Cooperative Council and the Ohio League to conduct a Web-based survey of Ohio cooperative executives on governance practices.
