Dusty MacDonald was first elected to the FCL Board in 2009. In 2012, he was elected Vice-Chair and from 2014 to 2018 he was the President/Chair of the Board. Dusty represents the 17 retail co-ops in FCL’s district 8, which covers the southeast corner of Saskatchewan.
As an FCL Director, Dusty is a member of the Board’s Audit, Sustainability and Credentials Committees.
Dusty received his ICD.D designation after successfully completing the Institute of Corporate Directors – Directors Education Program (DEP). The DEP was jointly developed by the Institute of Corporate Directors (ICD) and the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto, to help directors clarify their governance mission and fully exercise their leadership potential as a board member. It is the only professional designation for Canadian directors recognized nationally and internationally.

He has been employed on the governance side of co-ops as well as serving a leadership role on several boards as an elected representative. Dusty has also shown his commitment and passion for co-operatives by leading a volunteer technical co-operant mission to Costa Rica for the Canadian Co-operative Association.
