Your council, your voice
Introducing the members’ council.
Our Co-op is owned by its members. They elect representatives to the members’ council to ensure their voices and interests are heard at the highest level in our business.
Council representatives serve up to 3 years. The 100 people on the council come from all walks of life and include ordinary members, employee members and members from other co-operative societies.
The members’ council’s role is to act as the guardians of the Group purpose, values and principles, and the society’s constitution.
Any member meeting the eligibility criteria can stand for election to the members’ council.
The members’ council elects a president, 2 vice-presidents and a senate to lead and co-ordinate the activities of the council.
If you would like to get in touch with your Council, please email Council@coop.co.uk.
