Who controls the Co-op?

  • Co-ops are democratically controlled using a system of “one member one vote”.
  • “One member one vote” ensures that the co-op acts for the common good and not just for a few individuals.
  • Members control the co-op through a locally elected Board of Directors.
  • A member can become a Director of the co-op by allowing their name to stand at an annual election.
  • Members can also exercise control by attending annual meetings, by proposing or voting on resolutions, or by offering suggestions to co-op management and directors.
  • Decisions affecting the co-op are made locally in the best interests of the members and the comunity, and not in remote head offices
