Sounding Board
Outpost's Board of Directors will use this blog to discuss issues the board is exploring as it envisions Outpost's future. Can't make it to a meeting? Check here frequently to read what the Board is up to. By Your Board on September 6, 2013

Tracy Merges

(incumbent)

 

For the past three years, and previously from 2000 to 2007, I have had the great pleasure of representing the owners of Outpost Natural Foods on the Board of Directors, serving as Vice President for one year and Secretary for seven years. It is imperative that we recognize the connection between the food we eat and who we are, what we contribute to with every food dollar spent, the purchasing powers of the consumer, and the value of the cooperative model. Outpost is an educator and leader in all of these areas. Informed choices have an impact!   From a fiduciary standpoint, as a director there will be a fiduciary responsibility to the cooperative and its members as a whole, rather than a duty to a group of members. Right now another store is in the works! I would like the privilege - again - to have an active role in Outpost's future, as it continues as a cooperative leader in promoting a healthy lifestyle for individuals and for communities! Past service on the Board has been "the best job ever!"

 

Except during graduate school at Arizona State, I have been a Wisconsin resident my entire life. I have an out-of-balance commitment to work. When not at work, I’m doing something active outdoors and during any rare down-time can be found reading a book. During the spring I am a WIAA High School woman's softball umpire.
