YorSpace is an independent entity owned and controlled by its members. Membership is open to everyone in York and beyond. YorSpace currently has 175 members and is growing steadily. It is a democratic body with every member having a vote and all votes being equal. Share holding does not affect voting rights and remains at one member, one vote regardless of share purchase.
Officers of the society are elected at the Annual General Meetings. All members can stand for election to the Board or apply if the Board seeks to fulfil a specific role. ⅓ of Directors are obliged to stand down at each AGM. As a community led housing developer there are many roles for volunteers and members can easily get in touch through their website to join 'Working Circles'.
