Member Economic Participation

By using your co-op's money wisely, you also take care of your members — yet another way housing co-ops put people first.

One of the seven international co-operative principles is member economic participation.  This means that co-op members engage fully with their co-op, contributing financially to their co-op and sharing in the benefits of membership.

Using our Group Buying Program is one of the best ways member co-ops can participate economically in your federation and save money in your day-to-day operations.
