Members will not be required to commit
Members are not by default required to commit any volunteer time unless they opt in to becoming a 'working member'. There are a number of working member positions available which will allow the Co-op to refine its service and manage a smaller group of dedicated volunteers. Click HERE for more info.
What is a working member?
Working members will commit to three volunteer hours per month in a designated role in which they are well trained and supported. Rosters will be created three months ahead of time to enable forward planning.
Volunteers are still the life-blood of the Co-op and without you we can not open. So to thank you for your hard work and commitment "working members" will receive a 15% discount off their purchases in addition to all the other member benefits.
If you would like to know more about these working positions please click HERE to register your interest. The initial interest period in these positions will close November 30th so we can begin training in December.
The Co-op is now officially open to non-members however their purchases will incur a 20% surcharge on top of the marked member prices.
