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,  boardofdirectors@harmonyfoods.coop.

The Harmony Board again took advantage of another gorgeous northern Minnesota summer's eve and held our August meeting outside. The we spent some time reviewing the summer's financials and forecasting out into the rest of the year. We also began the process of re-imagining our annual board recruitment event to ensure inclusive, friendly, and welcoming connections and engagement for all involved in October.
