3. Introduction to Community Benefit Societies. Next Generation Community Solar Webinars

Kathy Hopkin from Cooperative Futures discusses what a Community Benefit Society is, along with the role of Directors and the skills required to do a good job. The session also covers how Community Benefit Societies differ from other legal entities and what you are and aren’t able to do within this structure, as well as how to ensure good governance within your CBS.

This series of introductory webinars were delivered for prospective directors of CORE community energy organisations as part of the Next Generation programme. They were principally aimed at new directors, though more seasoned practitioners may find them equally useful.

Working closely with Community Energy England other Community Energy networks, the Next Generation programme is ensuring that all emerging materials, resources and learnings are made available to the whole community energy sector.
