WHY BECOME A MEMBER?  


Our Profits are Your Profits

Any earnings realized by Sunderland Co-operative, after paying the cost of goods & operating expenses, are either reinvested in the business or declared through patronage dividends to its members based on their support (patronage) of the business. The Board of Directors makes this decision. Members must spend a minimum of $1,000.00 in a fiscal year to be eligible to receive patronage.  

One Member = One Vote

Each member has one vote & shares equal influence with other members. You are invited to the annual meeting where you can raise issues for discussion.

Member-Elected Board of Directors

Members are responsible for electing the Board of Directors, which establishes the co-op’s policies & strategies. The daily operation of the business is under the direction & supervision of the General Manager, who answers to the Board of Directors.


WANT TO BECOME A MEMBER?
