Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees is made up of dedicated, passionate Co-op owners that are elected to their positions. We have an annual election where all Co-op owners vote for their choice in Board representatives. They are a group of individuals, who are as diverse as the community and producers they serve.
The role of a board member can be fun, but not to be taken lightly. This group of volunteers work hard for us all.
Current Board Members
Bruce MacCracken - President
Mark Thornley - Vice President
Steve Moore - Secretary
Christina Kilbourn - Treasurer
Rachel Taber Hamilton
Corinne Herrewig - Staff Representative
What the board does is act on behalf of the membership to set strategic plans for the Co-op's futue, ensure that the Co-op remains fiscally sound and operates within the cooperative principles. We are addressing a long term plan for growth, and building strategic relationships with local organizations.
