Barbara Keith and Jon McDonald have been elected to the Board.
One of the most important ways owners can participate in the co-op is to have a voice in who’s elected to serve on the WSM Board of Directors. Each fall WSM owners elect two owners to serve on the Board of Directors: Consumer owners elect a Board member from the consumer owner candidates; worker owners elect a Board member from the worker owner candidates.
The Board of Directors is composed of seven members: four elected Board members, two appointed Board members, and the General Manager. Each year two of the elected Board positions are open for owner elections, and one of the appointed positions is open for appointment.
All of our profits are returned to owners, donated to our community, or used to strengthen the cooperative. Cooperative businesses are honest, open and fair, behave with integrity, and remain accountable for their actions.
