Guide: Our governance

Our Board

The Board sets the strategic direction of Co-operatives UK. The composition of the Board of Directors reflects our membership with seats reserved for different categories.

What could you do for the co-operative movement? Each year we seek new directors to help us promote, develop and unite co-ops across the UK. Email [email protected] of visit our elections page for more info.

The Board is integral to the success of Co-operatives UK, providing direction and guidance to our Management Team. The breakdown of how seats are allocated can be found here
