Why become a member?
A Patron member joins the co-op because they want to support the brewpub by drinking and eating there. Patron members receive a dividend based on the amount of money spent at the co-op. The dividend comes in the form of credit to be used in the future at the co-op.
In other words, if you eat and drink a lot at Foremost, you will get a lot of credit for free beer and food the following year. If you eat and drink only a little, you will only get a little bit of credit for the following year.
In addition to a dividend based on purchases, Patron members also receive one vote in the affairs of the cooperative.
The membership holds the following powers:
Election and removal of directors
Passage of advisory resolution for consideration by the Board
And all other rights given to them in the bylaws
