Doug Johnson has been working in co-ops for the past twenty-three years, both in Belfast, ME, and in Pittsburgh, PA. What started as a passion for good, healthy food has grown into a deep respect for the cooperative model and the social, cultural, and economic benefits that co-ops bring to our communities. Doug was a graduate of the final NCG CCMI (Consumer Co-operative Management Intensive) class, has served on the Maine Cooperative Business Alliance Steering Committee, the NCG Eastern Corridor Steering Committee, the NCG Board of Directors Nomination Committee, and has a Certificate in Cooperative Management from St. Mary’s University. In his eight years as General Manager at the Belfast Community Co-op, he has overseen transformative change at the operations and governance levels, all of which have culminated in a $6+ million renovation project that is set to be completed in the summer of 2024.
