Cooperative members have rights and responsibilities. Both are outlined in the co-op's bylaws, in standard parliamentary procedure, and in local, state and federal laws.

Members’ participation in the co-op can be as simple as handing out meeting flyers, or as involved as running for the board of directors. However, members always have a responsibility to:

  • pay lot rents in full and on time
  • ask good and thoughtful questions at annual meeting
  • stay informed about issues in the community by observing board meetings and reading all co-op correspondence
  • adhere to board-approved policies and procedures, including the meeting code of conduct
  • disclose any conflict of interest with the co-op to the board of directors by completing a conflict-of-interest form
  • vote on matters brought to the membership
  • deliver valid complaints in writing to the board of directors
  • pay the membership fee in full (or per the subscription/membership agreement),
  • abide by community rules
  • treat community members with respect and be a good neighbor
  • hold the board accountable for its actions, including obeying all bylaws and applicable local, state and federal laws
  • most importantly, be active in the community, as each member’s time and talent allow.

All ROC residents have the right to be treated fairly, respectfully, and without discrimination; and to have equal access to services.

Additionally, members have the right to:

  • be heard at a membership meeting
  • run for office at co-op elections, in accordance with the member-approved bylaws
  • inspect co-op records, in accordance with the member-approved bylaws, except those containing personal information about members
  • be given proper notice for all board and member meetings
  • deliver a valid petition to the board of directors when/if there is a serious issue to bring to the members for deliberation
  • a fair hearing before expulsion

ROC residents must be members in good standing to be eligible to run for board office.
