Board of Directors

While cooperatives resemble other businesses, they do have two very unique business characteristics that set them apart. First, they are owned and controlled by the members who use their services and second, the members share in the cooperative’s earnings.

The MKC Board of Directors is made up of local, agricultural business leaders, who are recognized for the industry expertise, as well as economic and community development skills. The Board of Director’s mission is to provide strategic direction and promote the cooperative’s long-term growth and financial stability.

The Board of Directors is composed of nine directors and up to six appointed associate directors, with two directors in the three districts and three at-large positions. Prior to the Annual Meeting, new directors are elected from the membership to serve for three-year terms. These directors represent the members of MKC.
