Co-op applications may only be submitted to the Co-op forum by an approved MDC co-op organizer (application here). A co-op application will be due by the 10th of the month before your co-op’s anticipated start month. This will ensure plenty of time for necessary documentation and planning. Example: if you plan to run a co-op in April, the application will be due March 10th. Applications (below) may be submitted up to three months in advance. Please copy and paste the application below and complete in its entirety. Completed co-op applications should be submitted as new threads in the main Co-op forum for approval. You will be notified by a Co-op forum moderator (HeatherB) upon acceptance. Please note that newly submitted threads are moderated which means they are not immediately published. If your co-op application is incomplete or there are any questions, the application will be sent via PM back to you and you will then need to re-submit it to the forum for final approval. Thank you!
