It’s a Matter of (Co-op!) Principles
October is Co-op Month, and it’s a great time to revisit our guiding co-op principles.
ACE Hardware, State Farm, REI, Land O’Lakes and Choptank Electric all share something in common: We’re all cooperatives.
We may be in different industries, but we all share a passion for serving our members and helping our communities thrive. In fact, all cooperatives adhere to the same set of seven principles that reflect our core values of honesty, transparency, equity, inclusiveness, and service to the greater good of the communities we serve.
October is National Co-op Month, so this is the perfect time to revisit these principles, which have stood the test of time while providing a framework for the future.
