Understanding a Co-op Financial Statement

Whether it is a regional or local cooperative, the annual meeting is the primary avenue by which members exercise their control of their cooperative. Patron-members are encouraged to participate in the annual meeting, voice any concerns they properly bring before the meeting and vote on the candidates who they feel will best serve them on the co-op board of directors.
