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 Rhonda Lokken, the Board Administrator,  boardofdirectors@harmonyfoods.coop.

The Harmony Board held this month's meeting inside the Harmony Community Kitchen, with some board members zooming in to join us. We began with a pre-meeting financial tutorial led by our treasurer, Tom Staker, who generously supports this aspect of the board's growth and development. Thank you Tom for the knowledge and experience you bring to our board! As for our business meeting, we continue to be impressed with Colleen's leadership as we see a solid financial strength in Harmony despite the various challenges - COVID, labor shifts, inflation. We are also happy to share that plans are underway for Summerfest and other in-person events that offer a closer connection between the board and our membership. We look forward to meeting you at one or all of those upcoming activities. Stay tuned! And finally, our conversation wrapped up with efforts to  clarify and strengthen Harmony's message of "Everyone Welcome". We will continue to develop and share this process with you as we move forward with this initiative. Don't forget! Board member meetings take place the last Wednesday of the month. Please consider joining us!
