Dingwall Wind Co-op took time to identify and recruit founding directors who were well known and trusted locally and happy to promote the Co-op. People were approached through personal contacts and asked to a meeting where the basic idea was laid out. A very large number of questions were asked and a lot of time spent with each of the prospective directors. One or two people approached decided to continue as supporters rather than in active roles. It was notable that some of the most difficult people to satisfy did then go on to become directors and take an active role in the launch of the Co-op!
