Cooperatives around the world operate by the same values and principles. Being a cooperative brings benefits and values to the communities we serve. The co-op business model is unique and deeply rooted in our local communities. Our core values (Integrity, Accountability, Innovation, and Commitment to Community) are based on these Seven Cooperative Principles.

1. Voluntary and Open Membership

2. Democratic Member Control

3. Members’ Economic Participation

4. Autonomy and Independence

5. Education, Training and Information

6. Cooperation Among Cooperatives

7. Concern For Community
