Participation in the Co-op
Our members are invited to participate in the Co-op in a number of different ways. Members are eligible to run for our Board of Directors, who serve as democratically-elected representatives of the Co-op membership. Members can also vote in our annual Board elections, vote for our Round Up program recipients, participate in committees, and attend monthly Board meetings and our Annual Member Meeting. If you’re interested in getting involved with the Co-op, becoming a member is a great first step!
Through patronage dividends, cooperatives return a percentage of net profit to their members. These dividends are distributed based on the total amount each individual member spends at the Co-op throughout the fiscal year. At the close of the fiscal year, the Board of Directors votes on the General Manager’s recommendation for patronage dividends, and dividends are then distributed to members based on the previous year’s results. Some years the Co-op will have enough net profit to return a portion to members, some years it might not.
