What is a co-op?:

A co-operative is a business owned by its members. It is created to provide services and products members need. A co-operative is a democratic organization – each member has a single vote, regardless of his/her investment in the co-operative, or his/her purchases from the co-operative.

Members elect a board of directors from among themselves to govern the co-operative. The board sets policies and hires a general manager to run the day-to-day activities of the co-operative. The board meets regularly to review operations and management reports.

Co-operatives uphold certain other principles including concern for community, educating the public and youth about co-operative values, voluntary and open membership, and autonomy.

Board of Directors:

As this is the first year of Midwest Co-operative Services Inc., our board of directors is comprised of 6 directors from both Huron Bay Co-operative Inc. and North Wellington Co-operative Services Inc. Members of the Midwest Co-op Board of Directors participate in the overall direction and planning of Midwest Co-op’s business and are committed to transparency, open communication, and ethical oversight.
