As a member of a co-operative, there is a responsibility to the organization that you have chosen to support with your enrolment. Membership involves degrees of both ownership and of participation in decision-making. As a MMC member you are asked to:
Participate in the election by either voicing your choice for the Board of Directors and/or becoming a director yourself.
Communicate your voice, your ideas, your resource availability to one of your Board of Directors.
Stay informed about the co-operative advantage and Shames Mountain’s health. Read our communications, investigate other co-operative and encourage others to become members.
Get involved and contribute what resources you have-knowledge, funds, equipment, and any and all talents. All contributions are important; contributions such as caring for a child while a member attends a meeting or takes a few turns on the hill, monetary contributions at any time are always useful, turning an idea into reality, and/or volunteering for a committee or work crew. If you can think of how you can help, the MMC Board of Directors will try to make it possible.
Share our story with your friends, family and work. The better educated our community becomes the stronger our co-operative will become.
