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 are composed of nine directors and up to six appointed associate directors. The nine director positions include one director in each of the three districts and six at-large positions. Directors are nominated by the Nominating Committee and elected from the membership to serve for three-year terms at the Annual Stockholders' Meeting. 

These directors represent the members of MKC.

LEADERSHIP TEAM

MKC is proud to have a leadership team that is passionate about and invested in the future success of the cooperative and our member-owners. Read more about our leaders and the experiences they bring to our organization by clicking on the photos below.
