Pauli Rancourt (Eveleth, MN) Pauli Rancourt
President & Perpetuation Committee:

A combined background of nonprofit administration, finance management, and a desire to live a healthy lifestyle are the foundation to my interest in serving on the Board of Directors. I am excited to be a member of the coop, and to support local business as much as possible. The teamwork and shared vision and oversight of the General Manager and Board of Directors is something I am committed to so the community can continue to enjoy quality goods purchased locally and priced competitively.
