CHS New Leaders Forum

Young farmers and ranchers are nominated by their cooperatives to participate in CHS New Leaders Forum activities. Through in-person and virtual events, they learn about the cooperative model, develop their leadership skills and discover how they can serve and advocate for agriculture and cooperatives.

If you are a young cooperative farmer-owner and would like to be nominated for the next CHS New Leaders Forum, contact the CEO or general manager of your local cooperative.

The committee's purpose is to develop and present a slate of resolutions on issues of importance to CHS members pertaining to agriculture, energy, trade, environment, cooperative governance and other policy matters.

The Rules and Credentials Committee is charged with ensuring the official business of CHS, including director elections, comply with the CHS governing documents, follow set processes and are conducted with the highest of integrity. The committee consists of eight CHS members, one from each of the company's director representation regions.

Two sets of CHS Bylaws amendments will be brought to a vote by CHS members at the 2023 CHS Annual Meeting. Learn about proposed amendments related to regional representation on the CHS Board (the number of Directors per region) and proposed amendments related to equity management.

Every owner’s voice matters in CHS governance. 

  • As is our historical practice, the exact text of the proposed bylaws amendments will be sent to members in the notice mailed in advance of the annual meeting. The text is also available at the links noted above under Amendments.
  • Absentee online voting will be available for members who cannot be at the annual meeting in person to cast their votes.
  • Beginning in 2023, we will enhance those options by giving absentee members a way to vote online during the annual meeting on any procedural motions related to the proposed bylaws amendments brought forward during the meeting. See the annual meeting notice sent to members for details.
  • Beginning in 2023, ranked choice absentee ballots will be used for Director elections in regions with more than two candidates.
  • Direct questions related to voting procedures to Megan Bern, CHS corporate secretary, or Brandon Smith, CHS general counsel.
