The Co-operative's members elect the Management Committee. This is done at our Annual General Meeting, with one third of the committee standing for re-election each year.
The Management Committee sets the overall strategy, objectives and policy for the Co-operative.
The Management Committee does not get involved in the day-to-day running of the Co-operative - this is left to our staff team. Each year the Management Committee update their skills by attending training and may buy in specialist expert advice, for example from the Co-operative's solicitor on complex legal issues.
The overall business of the Co-operative is considered at regular Management Committee meetings and sub-committee meetings. The Co-operative has three sub-committees:
Health & Safety and Human Resources
