More on quorums

An interesting response has just come through from Dave Boyle, which you’ll find if you click through on ‘comments’.  In the example he mentions, I think I’d have been one of the coop members who were arguing for a 5% minimum quorum being sufficient.

More broadly I share Dave’s views on the need to discuss new forms of governance for coops.  We don’t all do traditional meetings.  Activist capture, it could perhaps be argued, may be as problematic for cooperative concepts of democracy as management capture.
