In a cooperative, if we only emphasize profitability, the interests of the membership may quickly become secondary. On the other hand, a situation where too much consideration is given to the members' differing and changing interests may jeopardize business performance. So therefore, finding a balance is important. One role should not have priority over the other. Metaphorically speaking, cooperatives, by nature, have been given two solid feet, and as you know, it's much easier to stand on two feet than on one foot. Ensuring that is the board's most important task. It is a very cool system.
