How a Cooperative Benefits You

Being a member entitles you to voting rights at VTC's annual meeting. In addition, both members and patrons are entitled to accrual of ownership interest in the form of patronage capital. VTC is a non-profit company, therefore, a portion of profits made are paid back to the members/owners in capital credits.
