Training Program-Addressing Governance Challenges For Functional Committees In SACCOs

May 26, 2022 @ 8:00 am May 27, 2022 @ 5:00 pm EAT

The effective functioning of any cooperative society is premised on the proper functioning of its structures. The SACCO structures are manned and fulfilled by key stakeholders that include; Leadership, Management and owners-Members.

Effectiveness in this case is measured against how well the society is able to organize the core elements of a healthy governance structure which include; The business model, Leadership, Strategic direction, operating systems and procedures, Reporting and accountability.

The principle role of the Board is derived from the co-operative nature of business and its organizational structure which places the members at the supremacy of decision making.  Cooperatives by nature are owned and controlled by the people who use its services, and who, by working together, can reach an objective unattainable by acting alone. It is a form of business enterprise, organized on a voluntary basis, democratically controlled and member-owned, to variously meet the economic, social, and cultural needs of its members.

The Board committee is becomes a central instrument to ensure that the rights and obligations of the members are observed in the management of the cooperative. This Board does not work in isolation but works with and through its sub-committees, management and with support from the SACCO supervisory committee. It is however cardinal that these different stakeholders work in unison for the bigger whole and this can only be achieved through “addressing Governance concerns for effective functionality of all”.
