Member Benefits at the Slocan Valley Co-op
- As a member of a democratic organization, you have a voice in the direction of our Co-op through your vote at the Annual General Meeting. Members can also run for election on the Board of Directors, representing the members as a whole for the on-going success of the Association.
- Slocan Valley Co-op Members can also have a direct input by serving on committees or by offering suggestions to our Co-op Board of Directors.
- Any savings generated by our Co-op are returned to its member-owners, proportionate to the amount they have purchased during the year. These members’ savings accumulates as equity in each member’s share account, so the more a member supports the Slocan Valley Co-op, the greater their equity becomes.
- Receive equity rebates on their purchases (excluding lottery & gift cards).
- At the discretion of our Co-op Board of Directors, a percentage of a member’s equity may be returned to the member in the form of a cash rebate. Therefore our Slocan Valley Co-op is owned by our local residents and it becomes a part of our community’s economic viability.
