The Co-operative Group Board confirms reform timetable

May 29, 2014

Following unanimous approval of the principles of reform at The Co-operative Group SGM on 17 May, the Group Board has today agreed a timetable for reform implementation.

Until the end of July the focus will be on consultation with Area Committees, Regional Boards and Independent Societies.

The Group plans to issue draft Society rules mid-August for approval at a Special General Meeting to be held in early September. It is currently anticipated that the new rules, subject to regulatory registration, will take effect as soon as possible after approval.
