Uniform Marketing & delivery agreement

The Cooperative will procure its corn requirements from its members, in proportion to Shares owned, under a Uniform Marketing and Delivery Agreement with members. Each member is required to sign a Uniform Marketing and Delivery Agreement as a condition of membership. The Uniform Marketing and Delivery Agreement is intended to protect GLCP interest by insuring an adequate supply of corm for its plants. It is also intended to protect a Member by insuring his or hers right to market a specified number of bushels of corn with GLCP on a patronage basis based on Shares owned.

The following is a summary of the Uniform Marketing and Delivery Agreement:

  1. Members will be required to deliver corn to our facilities each year in proportion to Shares of Common Stock owned. Actual bushels per Share will be established by the Board of Directors, based on Shares outstanding and corn requirements.
  2. Members will supply us the committed bushels of corn each year, even if he or she has to buy the corn or we have to buy the corn for the member’s account.
  3. GLCP may schedule deliveries of committed bushels if warranted by market conditions and corn supply.

  5. Members will be required to notify GLCP of any security interests or liens in his or her corn.
  6. Payments for the corn will be made to the members in accordance with paragraph 8 of the Agreement.
  7. The Agreement has a five year initial term with a three year evergreen term.
