A cooperative is defined as a democratic enterprise owned and governed by its members. The cooperative's by-laws enforce the will of the members. The bylaws can be modified by a vote of the members. The board of directors who enforce the bylaws are elected by the members. All "profits" eventually must be returned to the members, either directly or via improvements to the shared enterprise.

The International Cooperative Alliance has adopted seven broad principles for cooperatives:

Voluntary and open membership
Democratic member control
Member economic participation -- members provide the capital and control the income
Autonomy -- no contract can hinder the control of the membership
Education of staff, membership and community about the benefits of cooperatives
Cooperation with other cooperatives
Concern for community
