Become a Member

The Alberta Community & Co-operative Association has two membership categories: Full Member and Auxiliary Member.

The Alberta Community & Co-operative Association welcomes, as Full Members, all organizations or individuals incorporated or registered to do business in Alberta on a co-operative basis or who support the objectives of ACCA. Each Full Member is a voting member and is eligible to sit on the Board of Directors. Choosing a class of membership is on a voluntary basis and you are free to choose the level of support to ACCA that best fits with your organization.

Types of Membership and Fees:

Size of Organization
Membership Share (one time cost) $50
Auxiliary Member – Annual fee $100
Full Members Delegates at Meetings
Annual membership dues of $500 to $5,000 One Delegate
Annual membership dues of $5,001 to $10,000 Two delegates
Annual membership dues of $10,001 to $15,000 Three Delegates
Annual membership dues of $15,001 to $20,000 Four delegates
Annual membership dues of over $20,000 Five delegates

Auxillary Membership – Auxiliary Members are individuals and organizations who support the mission and goals of the ACCA but are not eligible for Full Membership.

Auxiliary Members do not have a vote, nor may they be members of the Board of Directors, but they may participate in all other ACCA activities.

Step 1

Review the criteria and decide if your organization would best fit in the Full Member or Auxiliary Member category. If you have questions about this, please telephone Michele Aasgard, Executive Director at (780) 963-3766 to discuss it.

Step 2

Complete this membership application  and mail, fax or email it to the address on the bottom of the form.

Step 3

The Board of Directors of ACCA will review your application and determine your eligibility. The Board meets at least 4 times per year however; a special meeting can be called if required. We will notify you as soon as possible. Please do not send a cheque with the application. Your organization will be invoiced after the application has been reviewed and approved.

Organizations that do not meet the criteria for Full Membership are encouraged to join as Auxiliary Members. As part of our application process, ACCA reserves the right to deny applications that do not demonstrate a commitment to our mission. We may contact you to request further information about your organization prior to making a decision.
