Testimonial.

Terry Geib Vice Chair, Calgary Co-Operative Canada

I’ve participated in several governance training programs in the past, but none compare to the ‘Get on Board’ program. The information is tailored to the participants and class sizes are small, allowing for plenty of discussion. I was able to take a good portion of the best practices information back to our Board of Directors.
