Voting is now open for the 2017 Co-op AGM.

Our Co-op is owned by our members and they get a say in how we’re run. Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) happens every May and is one of the ways that eligible members can get involved in our Co-op’s democracy.

This year's AGM is on Saturday 20 May 2017 at Manchester Central.

We'll let you know by post or email if you can attend. We'd love to see you there, but if you can't make it you can still vote online or by using your voting form if you receive this in the post.
