For the past 12 years Director Walter Gregory of Bowling Green has opened and closed each meeting of the board of directors with the strike of the gavel. After 25 years at or near the head of the table as board president (2005-2017) or vice president (1992-2004), he has opted for a seat on the sidelines.

He has passed the gavel to Director Diane Saale of Defiance, who was elected by the cooperative's directors to serve as their new board president. She previously served as vice-president.

Director Dan Elliott of Warrenton was elected to serve as the new vice-president. Director Ted House of St. Charles was re-elected to serve as secretary-treasurer.
