Melina Morrison

CEO | Business Council of Co-operatives and Mutuals | Australia

Melina Morrison is the inaugural CEO of the Business Council of Co-operatives and Mutuals, the Australian apex for cooperatives, and was a driving force behind the formation of the Council in 2013.

She has since led the movement to many historic achievements including the first national mapping project to show the economic and social impact of Australian cooperatives and the development of ‘Mutual Value Measurement’, a framework to measure the total value creation of cooperatives.

As a result of Melina’s long-term campaign for access capital, the Federal Government passed the first enabling laws for cooperatives and mutuals in 18 years facilitating the issuing of equity without demutualisation.
