Governing Document Reviews

  • As circumstances change it is important that your co‑op’s governing document changes too – be it your Rules, your Articles or your constitution. We can help whether you need a minor update or a complete review, and will make sure that any changes reflect the law, we will also provide advice on best governance practice. We will assist you to work with your members to adopt the amended governing document and will make sure that all of the correct forms are filed on your behalf with your Regulator.

Review your policy documents

  • Co‑operatives often need additional policies – such as member agreements or secondary rules – to aid their governance.
  • We can review governance documents and policies to bring them into line with current requirements or draft bespoke policies that meet your governance needs, including: secondary rules or standing orders, terms of reference for board committees or governance processes including matters reserved for the board and inductions.
