Benefits of Volunteering With the West Michigan Co-op

The West Michigan Co-Op will be holding our annual meeting on March 3, 2009.

For those of you who have volunteered at least five times during the 2008 calendar year, you will be eligible to vote at this meeting. Furthermore, as a voting member you will be eligible to run for a vacant position on the board of directors.

There are two ways to become a voting member:
  1. Users of the West Michigan Cooperative may pay $100 to the Co-op to become a lifetime Voting Member of the Co-op. This is in addition to the $35 annual user fee, which must be maintained to remain a lifetime Voting Member.

  2. Users who volunteer five or more times in a calendar year, ending December 31st, will become a Voting Member for the following calendar year. You must volunteer five times every year to maintain a Voting Member status. The volunteer numbers will reset to zero every January 1st.

Volunteers are currently needed to help during pick-up nights as well as on the committees. Currently the Membership Committee and the PR/Marketing Committee are in need to more volunteers. For information on committees, as well as contact information, please visit our Web site.

If you have any further questions or if you would like to find out how many times you have volunteered this year, please contact Tara at
