Who can be a "member" of CEANYC? Groups which are/directly support or develop any of the following solidarity economy formations: consumer cooperatives, worker cooperatives, producer cooperatives, low-income housing cooperatives, community development credit unions, cooperative development loan funds, community gardens, mutual housing associations, time banks, barter networks, and community land trusts.
Groups may include community-based and social justice organizations, trade unions, and cultural organizations, and other solidarity economy enterprises and associations. Groups must be based in New York City or have a significant investment in the five boroughs.
Each entity is encouraged to make a donation, but joining does not require a fee. All members have the right to speak and vote at our Summer member meeting, join committees and run for election to CEANYC's Board of Directors. In the case of a member group corresponds to multiple sectoral constituency criteria, it may only exercise its right to vote in one constituency.
Indivual New Yorkers may also join CEANYC as individuals, if they are a member of any of the above groups and would like support in developing the relationship between CEANYC and their entire organization.
