Give the gift of cooperation! Member-Ownership at Black Star Co-op is a great way to show someone you really care. Members of Black Star Co-op OWN one membership share, all members have equal voting power to elect the Board of Directors, and members set the long term goals of the Co-op in the form of Ends policies. Anyone over the age of 21 can become a member-owner, and as of May 2014, we have over 3,300 member-owners.
In addition to democratic participation, benefits of membership include:
- Weekly discounts on Tuesday Member Owner Pint Nights
- Subscription to our monthly newsletter
- Invitation to Members-only events
- Discounts during Member Appreciation Events
- Free beer on your co-op birthday
- Volunteer opportunities
- Future patronage benefit
Each membership share is priced at $150 per person. Two people who share a mailing address can also join together, but each is assessed a full membership share.
Membership shares are priced at $150 for single individuals, or $300 for two individuals who share a mailing address. If you have additional questions about gift memberships in the Co-op, contact us.
