Bylaws & Policies

As a member-owner of North Coast Co-op, we invite you to familiarize yourself with how our business is run by reviewing our bylaws, articles of incorporation and board policy manual.

All member-owners are welcome to attend the Policies and Procedures Committee the third Wednesday of every month at the Arcata Co-op conference room (upstairs). It is at this meeting where suggested changes to our bylaws and other documents are discussed. Visit the Co-op Calendar for upcoming meetings. 



Our bylaws serve as a guide to how our Co-op does business and are routinely reviewed and updated to ensure the Co-op operates in a cooperative manner.
