Your council, your voice

Introducing the National Members’ Council.

Our Co-op is owned by its members. They elect representatives to the National 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 Members' Council come from all walks of life and include ordinary members, employee members and members from other co-operative societies.

Meet the Members' Council

The Council act as the guardians of the co-operative values and principles, making sure they're at the heart of what we do as a business. They also hold the Board to account on the purpose of the Co-op and our constitution as a society.

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.
