Membership Benefits

Ownership Pays

As part of CHS, a member-owned cooperative, CHS Prairie Lakes provides value-added programs, products, and services to all of its member-owners.

You Receive a Return

Member-owners receive annual dividends, which are allocated based on the type and amount of products and services each member uses.

You Have a Vote

Each member maintains ownership in CHS, giving them a voice – and a vote. You elect your producer member board, which guides your local CHS Prairie Lakes. CHS Prairie Lakes carries a specified number of votes with CHS, which are used to vote on all issues affecting CHS, including its articles, bylaws, board leadership and structure.  This helps to ensure that the cooperative will grow the way members want it to grow.

You Have a Team

As a member-owner of CHS and CHS Prairie Lakes, you have further input through your locally-elected producer member board of directors, which is composed of eight fellow producer member-owners.
