What is a Co-op?

The Identity of a co-op is defined as "an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly-owned and democratically controlled enterprise."

Co-op Values are based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity, and solidarity.  In the tradition of their founders, co-op members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility, and caring for others.

Co-op's put their Values into practice through the guidelines of the Seven Cooperative Principles.

Ferry County Co-op's Guiding Documents

Like Co-op's world wide, our Co-op is guided by our Articles of Incorporation (Washington State), our membership approved bylaws, International Cooperative Alliance Identity & Values, and by the 7 Cooperative Principles.
