Co-op Bylaws and Policies

By Laws and Policies

Cooperative businesses and their boards are governed by bylaws and policies. These structures keep the business, its employees, and its volunteer board accountable to Member-Owners and to the 7 Cooperative Principles on which we’re founded: Voluntary & Open Membership; Democratic Member Control; Member Economic Participation; Autonomy & Independence; Education, Training & Information; Cooperation Among Cooperatives; and Concern for Community.
