CHS is a cooperative, which means it’s governed by the farmers and local cooperatives that own it. Our owners have elected 17 full-time farmers or ranchers to serve on the CHS Board of Directors, representing eight regions from across the country. The number of directors representing each region is determined by business volume and the number of farmers, ranchers and cooperatives in the area.
More information about CHS governance can be found in the CHS Articles of Incorporation, CHS Bylaws and the Committee Charters.
