Your Participation is Required at Bounty
The co-op lifestyle is all about participation! The people who live in the cooperative (members), organize themselves into committees and work together to manage and maintain the co-op in every aspect. It's a group effort and an important commitment! Regular participation is required to maintain your membership in good standing within the co-op.
Each committee is responsible for specific tasks. For example, we have committees that take care of many of the maintenance, landscaping, financial, and administration duties. We strive to perform these tasks as much as we can, not only for the purpose of saving money, but also for fun and community involvement. However, where there is a lack of expertise or when a task is better suited for professionals, we will hire them if necessary.
General meetings are held periodically for the membership to vote on important issues. As such, it is mandatory that at least one member from each household attend all general meetings, as well as the Annual General Meeting.
One thing that you do not normally experience in typical rental or strata housing is a sense of community. In a co-op, by working together, we get to know each other, and many members within the co-op community become great friends! We wave and say hi to each other when in passing, and we chat in the hallways and in our beautiful backyard. There are no strangers among us, and we enjoy each other's company in both organized and informal gatherings. Throughout the year, Bounty enjoys several seasonal BBQ's, potlucks and parties that are organized by our Social Committee.
