Let’s celebrate! It’s National Co-op Month

Cobb EMC is celebrating National Co-op Month this October, which recognizes the many ways cooperatives are committed to strengthening the local communities they serve.

What is a cooperative?

A co-op is a business that is owned and controlled by its members or customers. Our business exists to provide you reliable electricity – not to make a profit.

Why are cooperatives different?

Seven cooperative principles set us apart from other businesses:

  1. Open membership
  2. Member control
  3. Member economic participation
  4. Autonomy and independence
  5. Education, training and information
  6. Cooperation among cooperatives
  7. Concern for community

In addition to providing the vital power co-op members depend on, Cobb EMC focuses on making a difference in the communities we serve. You’ll find us right here in our community building Habitat for Humanity homes, sponsoring local runs and walks, and hosting community education events.

To celebrate National Co-op Month, we invite members to stop by the payment center on October 6 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a gift.
