Membership in the Co-op brings benefits to both full-fledged Members and Subscribers who are working their way toward full membership. Look here for membership information, membership application, and benefit details.
Member vs. Subscriber
If you own fewer than ten (10) shares in the Co-op, you are a Subscriber. Many of the Member benefits will not apply to your member number. You can acquire more shares through patronage refund, or you can purchase them outright. A Subscriber has three years to reach ten shares, or your membership will be closed.
Once you own ten shares, you are a Member. Each membership only has one Member, but immediate family or partners who are in our database as Approved Cardholders are eligible for Member benefits. However, they cannot vote or run for the Board of Directors.
