Ends Policies monitoring overview

The PCC Ends Policies define the nature and vision of our cooperative, providing management long-term goals toward which all of its practices and initiatives are directed. Management reports to the board each year — first on its interpretation of the Global and five Ends Policies, and then on actions that demonstrated management’s compliance with the board’s directives.

See an excerpt from management’s 2010 report to the board on activities in support of Ends Policy B, next column. Visit our Policy Governance® page for a complete list of our Ends Policies.

Ends-B: PCC membership is a respected and valued choice.

Member bonus discounts

In June, July and August, PCC coupon books were inserted into home-delivered copies of the Sound Consumer. The coupons offered significant savings to members beyond the MBD discounts and were very well received. The coupon books had a positive impact on our summer sales and, due to promotional copy throughout, they helped to remind members of our many ongoing community programs.

Throughout the year, 41,706 member numbers, or 94.2 percent of total members, were scanned to receive one or more of the member bonus discounts. A total of $2,857,032 in discounts was returned to members (excluding staff), an increase of 8.2 percent over the prior year.
