A member of a cooperative is an owner of that co-op. Generally, they become a co-op owner (member) when they economically contribute capital through the purchase of a share of the co-op. By becoming a member, an individual receives decision-making rights in the co-op. The level of decision-making rights for member-owners often depends on the size and type of co-op. But in every form of co-op, at a minimum, the members elect the co-op’s board of directors. In addition, members of co-ops must own that co-op equally – meaning all members may only have one share and one vote in decision-making processes.
