As a member owned business, our AGM and elections give you a chance to get involved in our democracy. It’s one of the things that makes us different. And you can see what a difference voting in last year’s AGM made in these short videos.

There’s now less than a week left to return your AGM voting pack, to vote on our Member Nominated Directors, Council members, and motions – important things like what we campaign on, and how we work.

A new motion for 2018 (number 11), is about our use of plastic packaging, something very topical at the moment. While 71% of Co-op brand products are already in easy to recycle packaging (our goal being 80% by 2020) a vote for motion 11 will support our commitment to:

  • ​Maintain our leadership position in identifying and reducing the sources of plastic pollution
  • Maximise the recyclability of packaging, especially plastic packaging
  • Report each year on the detailed progress made around packaging recyclability

All eligible members should have had packs in the post or on email by now. If you haven’t had yours, you’ll need to call 0800 023 4708. But be quick – all voting packs must arrive back by midday, 14 May.
