Volunteering

Volunteering is a great way to get to know your neighbours

The Membership committee interviews every applicant. These people are volunteers. During the interview, they will go into detail about the various ways in which a new member can volunteer.


When a new member moves into the Co-op, they will be required to sign an agreement stating that they will participate in some committee activity.

 

Each member must agree to participate for four hours per month. There are lots of choices of committees


Volunteering is a great way to get to know how the Co-op works and is also a great way to get to know your neighbours.


These volunteer committees are critical as they help to keep the operating costs low. Without them, the Co-op would have to hire more people and raise the housing charges accordingly.


Volunteer participation is mandatory for all members.
