#Memberperks keep coming!

Oct 21, 2019 | blog

We’re working hard to increase the value of our monthly memberships– and we’re doing a pretty good job– but we want to add more.

Want to see more perks? Have ideas on how we can increase member value? Fill out this short survey to help make us better stepping into our 3rd year!

As of October 15th, 2019 these are our #Memberperks:

We’re a mission-driven non-profit co-op, and we make sure every dollar spent with us goes a long way – so thank you. Want to know more about our mission & story? Visit our website!

Our policy is that our members are owners – we are a co-op. We encourage all users to become Owner Members by buying a lifetime share (and vote!) for $5. This way our board and our organization is accountable to you and owned by you. Any host can help you sign up as an owner, and then you can vote at our AGM.
