Membership Benefits

Powhatan Internet Cooperative is a membership cooperative. As a membership cooperative, our members are the owners of the company. We elect the Board of Directors. Members are invited to attend the Annual Meeting at which they can hear the annual financial report, listen to reports from both the President and the Executive Director, and learn about the cooperative’s products and services.

Another benefit of the cooperative way of business is the annual allocation of capital credits to the member. Capital Credits are each member’s portion of the operating margins (or surplus) of the cooperative. At the discretion of the Board, and when financial conditions warrant, these credits are paid in cash to the members.

Who is Eligible

Any person over the age of 18, partnership, corporation or other legal entity may become a member of the cooperative by purchasing services from the company and by meeting all requirements established by the company.
