Member’s Bill of Rights

UDWI values its Members, Employees, and Integrity. We seek transparency in all that we do. We as a cooperative have created a Members’ Bill of Rights as an opportunity to educate our members on what their rights are, as well as give the members something to hold us accountable to. Member satisfaction is of great importance to UDWI, and we will continue to improve in any way that we can.
