52. A cooperative may by by-law provide for one or more classes of auxiliary members and determine the conditions of their admission and their rights and obligations. The by-law shall indicate the reasons for creating the class of auxiliary members. However, a person or a partnership may not be admitted as an auxiliary member unless that person or partnership is capable of actually being a user of the cooperative’s services.
Auxiliary members have no vote and are ineligible for office.
