Board of Directors

Our leadership and members.


Group Health Cooperative of Eau Claire is a Non-Profit, Member-Governed Health Plan.

This means that the people who sit on our Board of Directors are members of the Cooperative. Because of this, our Board members have a vested interest in the business decisions they influence. All adult members of the Cooperative are eligible to vote in annual Board elections, giving them a unique opportunity to have a voice in directing the decisions and activities of their health plan. Five committees, focused on specific issues, work towards accomplishing the Board’s goals. Each Board member contributes to one or more of these committees: By-Laws and Nominations Committee, Fiscal Committee, Member Relations Committee, Personnel and Policy Committee.
