Terms of Ownership

I understand and agree that: 

  • As the original signer of this member-owner certificate, I have the primary interest in equity investment, membership voting rights, and potential patronage refunds.
  • By making a $25 equity investment I am purchasing one share of voting stock in Open Harvest Cooperative and becoming a member-owner of this cooperative corporation.
  • I have the responsibility of supporting my cooperative through my patronage (shopping at the Co-op) and showing my member-owner card at the register.
  • I have the responsibility of notifying the Co-op of changes in my contact information.
  • As long as l maintain my member-ownership and patronize the Co-op, I have voting rights and the opportunity to run for the Board of Directors and/or its committees.
  • My household is eligible to receive membership benefits for one calendar year immediately after making this $25 investment. Benefits include but are not limited to: member-only discounts and specials, voting rights and receipt of the newsletter via email.
  • Each year I will be notified at the register and/or through a renewal letter for my next annual membership investment. If the payment is not received by the due date, I give up my member-owner benefits (including voting rights) until the member-ownership is reinstated.
  • My member-ownership equity is only refundable at the Board of Directors’ discretion as set forth in the Bylaws, a copy of which will be provided upon request.
  • My member-ownership equity will be held for one year if I miss my renewal date, after which my membership is considered inactive and the equity will be considered abandoned to the cooperative (if the conditions set forth in the bylaws are met).
