Celebrating Co-ops Across the Nation Every October


Every October, members from more than 29,000 cooperatives nationwide join to celebrate the advantages of cooperative membership and recognize the benefits and values co-ops bring to their members and communities.


Unlike other businesses, cooperatives are not-for-profit, democratically controlled, volunteer-run, member-owned organizations.


We exist to serve our members, and that level of service remains high even during the toughest times. Instead of issuing stock or paying dividends to outside shareholders, cooperatives provide value to their members through capital credit checks and by following the seven guiding principles.


1. Open and Voluntary Membership 2. Democratic Member Control 3. Members’ Economic Participation 4. Autonomy and Independence 5. Education, Training and Information 6. Cooperation Among Cooperatives 7. Concern For Community


Preparing Your Home For Winter Weather


Winter is coming! At the end of a long summer it might be hard to think that it’s going to get cold soon. A lot of people are trying to figure out if the Razorbacks or Sooners have a chance at the national championship. Others are preparing for the holidays or what opportunities they may have in the upcoming hunting seasons. Sometimes, we forget that fall is a great opportunity do some much needed energy improvements, when you can actually go into an attic without risking heat stroke.


Fall is a great time to replace that aging heat and air system or to switch to a more affordable means of heating your home. Temperatures are soon going to reach a relatively pleasant level. If your system isn’t in need of replacement, it’s also a great time to have your heating and air-conditioning system examined. Most heating and air companies offer services to clean and maintain your system. Cleaning your heating and cooling system can increase the efficiency of your unit.


Knowledge is power and the first step in energy improvements is figuring out what needs to be fixed. The best way to figure this out is with a complete energy audit. Our trained certified professional auditor can conduct an audit of your home to determine exactly how much energy you are wasting and help lower your winter energy bills.
