Consistency, involvement, rigour: these words describe well the Board of Directors and the employees of this cooperative. The cooperative always enjoyed a strong Board which demanded a lot of its General Managers and of its employees. This helped to build a solid foundation.
In effect, on average the cooperative has the highest level of seniority in terms of members of the Board as well as of employees in its different spheres of activity. This represents several decades of experience as directors and centuries of experience as workers.
These qualities are also often found in the very active circle of sculptors and artisans who gravitate around the cooperative, which gives them a particularly enviable international reputation.
For example, Eli Eliyassiapik, a renowned sculptor who is the current president of the FCNQ Board was first elected to the position in 1990.
While the cooperative has had to face difficult periods in its history, its' unshakeable belief in the good which cooperative work represents for all has produced constant economic growth and made it one of the largest creators of employment in the community.
