Good Governance Charter for Housing Co-operatives
The Good Governance Charter for Housing Co-operatives was launched at the ICA Housing Plenary in Manchester in November 2012.
It has three parts:
- A 10-point set of good governance practices
- An interpretive statement for each good practice
- The International Co-operative Alliance’s statement on the Co-operative Identity which includes the seven International Co-operative Principles
It is intended to support the work of housing co-operative boards and how they carries out their duties. It focuses on the fundamental principles of governance and ethics that apply internationally to all housing co-op boards of directors. The Charter is also available in French – Une charte de la bonne gouvernance pour les coopératives d’habitation
