Board of Directors

Harmony Co-op's Board of Directors is made up of nine co-op owners who are elected by the general ownership. Any co-op owner can run for a board position. Elections are in April, during our anniversary month. Guided by the Harmony Co-op Board Policies and Harmony's End Statements, the board works closely with our General Manager, who reports on the operation of the store. 

The Board of Directors is responsible to assure the representation of Harmony Co-op interests in any and all organizations with which there is membership or other relationship. They take pride in representing our community of investors through strategic policy and planning. View the Board of Directors Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws.

Join the Board

Any Harmony Co-op Owner can run for a seat on the Harmony Co-op Board of Directors through self-nomination. You can contact the board coordinator by emailing DeeJay, the board coordinator,

Our Annual Owner Meeting will not happen as it traditionally has in the past.  The official meeting and festivities are cancelled. However, our Board Chair, Mary Overlie, will have a video of her Annual Owner message, as well as, the formal written report available Monday, April 27th at the store per your request to a cashier. 
The Harmony board recently held its April work session to orient and onboard our two new board members, Kathryn Gonzalez and Diane Rose. We were so grateful for the opportunity to be together and begin digging into what makes Harmony Harmony. It’s amazing that when you keep your purpose and processes clear as an organization, you can still feel buoyed and resilient in such times as these, hence our smiling faces. Welcome to Kathryn & Diane!
