Town Hall Meeting

Your CHS Town Hall Meetings

Cooperative leaders and farmers are invited to attend Your CHS Town Hall Meetings and Tours in June and August. New this year, the town hall meetings will be held at CHS locations in nine states, providing members with an opportunity to see some of the assets they own and learn about investments CHS has made to serve their current and future needs.  

Each location will include market and financial insights, a discussion of co-op consolidation trends, a conversation about co-op culture, a CHS update from senior leadership, and a question-and-answer session. Tours will vary by location, and may include a walking, bus, barge or video tour.

Attendees will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the 2018 Super Bowl at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Members may choose any location to attend:

  • June 14: Whitesville, Ind. – Fertilizer blending facility
  • June 15: Laurel, Mont. – Oil refinery
  • June 16: Minot, N.D. – Fuel terminal
  • June 22: Kalama, Wash. – Grain export terminal
  • Aug. 1: Rochelle, Ill. – Ethanol plant
  • Aug. 16: McPherson, Kan. – Oil refinery
  • Aug.17: Denver, Colo. – Ardent Mills flour mill
  • Aug. 22: Fairmont, Minn. – Soybean processing plant
  • Aug. 24: Sioux City, Iowa – Wholesale feed plant
  • Aug. 29: Savage and St. Paul, Minn. – Grain terminal in Savage, and travel via barge to tour fertilizer terminal in St. Paul    

All cooperatives are encouraged to think about holding a board meeting/retreat in conjunction with attending a town hall. Members who attend the St. Paul meeting may also wish to consider going to a St. Paul Saints game at CHS Field on August 29 or 30.
