Cooperative governance mechanisms play an important role in the organization's strategic decisions. Post-crisis studies of any cooperative have shown that the board's inadequacy is one of the most important causes of the crisis, as the board can affect the quality of risk management and risk disclosure. This study examines the impact of cooperative governance mechanisms on cooperative risk-taking. This study is a survey and library research and is an applied, descriptive and correlational research that has been done by selecting information of agricultural production cooperatives in Guilan province. The model used in this study consisted of panel regression model and the tests used were Lemar test, Fisher test and t test. Eviews software was used to fit the model. Co-operative governance mechanisms include board size, board independence, and CEO duality, and risk indices include three indicators, including special risk, survival risk, and activity risk. The results showed that the specific risk was significantly correlated with the coefficients of board size, managerial dichotomy, and board independence. Survival risk was significantly correlated with board duality variables and board independence. There is a significant relationship between activity risk and board duality and board independence.
