Hi, my name’s Mary McGuigan and I’m a representative for the North West on the Co-op’s National Members’ Council.
So first of all I’d like to say thanks to everyone who voted, not just for me, for all Council members.
The thing I love about the Co-op is that as members we’re all owners of the business and as well as giving us benefits like exclusive deals and offers it means that we can also have a say in how our business is run.
However, with 3.4million active members it would be hard to hear us all if we tried to speak all at once. So the Co-op’s solution is the Members’ Council; 100 members, just like you, elected by you, to represent you.
To make sure that we do that in the best way possible we want to have a chat with you, albeit virtually, about what’s important to you.
We’d love to hear from you so please feel free to ask any questions, give us your feedback and share your hopes for the Co-op by commenting below and my Council colleagues and I will reply.
We’re really looking forward to hearing what you think.
