GOVERNANCE POLICIES

The Plainfield Co-op Board of Directors governs using the Policy Governance model. This model of governance was developed by John and Miriam Carver. As stated on the Carver’s Policy Governance, this model of governance is “designed to empower boards of directors to fulfill their obligation of accountability for the organizations they govern. As a generic system, it is applicable to the governing body of any enterprise. The model enables the board to focus on the larger issues, to delegate with clarity, to control management's job without meddling, to rigorously evaluate the accomplishment of the organization; to truly lead its organization.” The International Policy Governance Association also has extensive information about Policy Governance.
