What are the responsibilities of Co-op members?
A successful Co-op depends entirely on the members. All members must be prepared to provide their input into the management of the Co-op when required. They are expected to:
- Attend Annual General Meeting
The AGM is held once a year, usually in November, and is followed by a catered meal for Co-op members, guests and friends. Attendance at this meeting is compulsory.
- Attend Special General Meetings
From time to time the Committee will schedule a Special General Meeting for issues that may effect members directly. Attendance at these meetings is encouraged.
- Pay Rent
All members are expected to pay rent and maintain their rent account at 1 or 2 weeks in advance. Any ongoing rent disputes will be dealt with in accordance with the Residential Tenancies Act 1997.
- Look after their Co-op property
Report any necessary repairs to the Co-operative as soon as possible.
- Follow Co-op Rules & Policies
All members of the Co-op must agree to abide by the Model Rules and the Policies & Procedures of the Northern Geelong Rental Housing Co-operative.
