Building better leaders
COTTAGE GROVE, WI, October 31, 2018 – Landmark Services Cooperative (LCS) Secretary-Treasurer of the Board of Directors, Kevin Klahn, was recently recognized for his success in completing the three-year Advanced Governance Series (AGS) training through Farm Credit Counseling Services (FCC Services).
Developed solely for cooperatives, this program incorporates engaging courses and relationship building with industry peers and subject matter experts to instill greater confidence among directors that leads to improved overall board performance. With a focus on relevant issues like the complexities of governance and fiduciary responsibilities, the program’s modules are crafted to target high-impact focus areas for cooperatives.
Over the course of the three-year program, Klahn joined directors from agricultural cooperatives across the nation as part of an AGS membership group. These participants participate in six core modules, each focusing on an area essential to excellence in governance. The modules provide a solid foundation for leadership decision making.
“Attending the FCC Services training was a great learning experience for me,” says Klahn. “Each of the modules keyed in on very pertinent leadership principles and real situations faced by directors. The interaction with peers from other cooperatives across the US was also valuable. I truly appreciated this opportunity.”
Upon completion of this series, Klahn was recognized for his achievements at the October Landmark Services Cooperative Board of Directors meeting. John Blaska, Board Chairman, presented Klahn with an Advanced Governance Series Certificate of Achievement.
The Landmark Services Cooperative Board of Directors was part of a leading group of cooperative board members who helped FCC Services develop this series of board governance training. Members of the Landmark Services Cooperative Board of Directors take part in FCC Services training throughout the year.
