Martha Whitman loves the business of co-ops and has participated as a worker, general manager, and director of food cooperatives and credit unions for over 35 years. Along the way she joined NCG’s leadership team, the LEADer, co-creating workshops and its e-zine. Because of her experience both operationally and in the governance role, Martha sees the high value of the cooperative model.  As a leadership development consultant through CDS CC she now has the honor of working with co-ops across the country. Along the way she has learned that good governance is an art and a science, and the soft and hard skills are what she brings to the table.
