Congratulations to Carol Ann Wessman in receiving an Outstanding Service Award from the Minnesota Service Cooperatives!

This year, we are celebrating Carol’s 25 years with SCSC. Carol has directed finance operations since 1996, and in 2005 she also began serving as the finance director for the Minnesota Service Cooperatives. Carol provides support to not only our staff and members, but she has served as fiscal and administrative host to a number of partnerships, and to our two nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations.
 
As a member of the administrative team, Carol provides leadership to the organization, helping to ensure a culture of consistent fiscal prudence, and yet still having the flexibility to support staff innovation and creative partnerships. 
 
Outstanding Service Award honorees are selected from each Service Cooperative for their outstanding service to their region.
 
The Outstanding Service Award recipients exercise leadership, support the regional delivery system, contribute to the Board of Directors’ work, and advance the goals and philosophies of the Minnesota Service Cooperatives. They embody the spirit of cooperation and apply that to their roles at their service cooperative. Honorees have a unique understanding of the strengths and needs of their members, and use those insights to positively influence and improve outcomes.
 
SCSC is proud to have Carol be this year’s award recipient, as she is an example of excellence in serving on behalf of our members.
