Each of our Co-ops are led by volunteer steering committees, largely comprised of member company representatives. In some Co-ops we have regulators and contract custodians who contribute their ideas and help to keep the lines of communication open.

The regular term for a Co-op Chair is two (2) years, after which time they will step down and either resume their position as a Steering Committee member or Alternate Chair, depending on the needs and wishes of the Steering Committee.
