Formed in 1944, the Kansas Cooperative Council is a voluntary trade association representing all forms of cooperatively structured business in Kansas. The Mission of the Kansas Cooperative Council is to promote, support and advance the interests, business success and understanding of agricultural, utility, credit and consumer cooperatives and their members through legislation and regulatory efforts, education, and public relations.
Membership in the Kansas Cooperative Council is a voluntary investment that pays big dividends. The Council's voice is heard loudly and clearly on legislative and regulatory matters important to our agribusiness, utility and financial cooperatives. Advocates for cooperative business can be found in the halls of the Kansas Statehouse and lobbying Capitol Hill. Educational programs are created and offered to cooperative directors and employees. All these efforts are aimed at improving the business and climate for cooperatives and providing tools our members need to help them succeed.BECOME A MEMBER
BOARD OF DIRECTORS & STAFF
The Council's Board of Directors sets the strategic direction for Kansas Cooperative Council. Eight board members are elected from our farm and ag supply membership and they then appoint additional board members from within The Council's membership. The Board is comprised of two directors from each Council's farm and ag supply district and representatives from ProValue Insurance, KEC, HCUA, CHS, and the Farm Credit System.
