I would like to serve on the Cooperative Board of Directors for a couple reasons. First, it allows me to gain information about the Cooperative and the insurance industry. Secondly, I hope to be able to assist with any decisions that the Board is asked to help in making, positively benefiting Cooperative members. Having served on the Board for the past year, I have gained valuable insight on how things operate.
I am passionate about wellness from both a health and cost perspective, and I view serving on the Group Health Cooperative Board as a way to give back.
I am honored with the opportunity to provide assistance to a local company that also impacts my company and its employees by serving on the Cooperative Board. As a Human Resources Coordinator and business owner, I am equipped to offer perspective on multiple aspects of health insurance. With significant transition in the health industry on the horizon, I welcome the opportunity to help shape future policies so they are user-friendly to the insured.
I am honored to be considered as a candidate for the Cooperative Board of Directors. I believe that I would provide the educational leadership experience plus a broad base of knowledge. With a varied and extensive background in public education, both as a counselor and as a school administrator, I believe I can offer insight the Cooperative Board would find helpful.
I have served on the Cooperative Board for the past year. It is my belief that a healthy work environment that is also unique and fun. Healthy employees are not only happier and more productive employees, they tend to have fewer medical costs. My main interest is in promoting corporate wellness, but I am also very interested in helping the Board to expand destination medicine.
