doing business as Arena Market and Café
185 Main Street, PO Box 801 Point Arena, CA 95468
Thank you for becoming a member of our cooperative! Members own equity in the organization, qualify to vote at our member meetings, and enjoy special discount benefits.
Use this form to become a member or renew your membership, and pay online using a credit or debit card.
If you prefer to pay by check, please print a copy of the membership application form and either mail it with your check or bring it to the store and pay at the register.
Please complete this application in full. You are joining a cooperative corporation that requires paying for equity to own shares and run the cooperative, so we must have accurate records of how to contact you. This is why we need your mailing address and physical address (if different) in California. However, we prefer to contact you by email to avoid postal expenses.
Section 1.02, Membership Qualifications, of the bylaws of Coastal Organics Cooperative, Inc., requires that each prospective member be a natural person, resident in the State of California, and make full payment for at least 50 shares at $1.00 each. Section 1.04, Acceptance of Members, of the bylaws requires that this application be reviewed and accepted unless rejected within thirty (30) days for reasons satisfactory to the Board of Directors. If rejected, the applicant shall be entitled to a full refund.
When you join the co-op, you will be assigned a co-op member identification number. Use this number to access benefits like the member discount on store purchases or joining the Propane Buyers Club for discounted fuel. Other people in your household may access those benefits as long as they are living at the same address and have your permission.
