Board of Directors
 
The governance of Countrymark Cooperative Holding Corp. and the management of its affairs are vested in the Board of Directors. The directors are nominated by members of Countrymark Cooperative Holding Corp. and elected to rotating three-year terms at the annual meeting of members. Five of the seven directors are assigned to a specific district, and two directors serve in an at-large capacity. Members of Countrymark Cooperative Holding Corp. are assigned to districts based on the agricultural community and geographic convenience, and so the aggregate number of member votes in each District is approximately equal.

As a farmer-owned cooperative, CountryMark serves as a strong advocate and state leader in the marketing of renewable fuels including ethanol and biodiesel blends. Due to disproportionate economic hardship, CountryMark applied for an exemption under the Environmental Protection Agency's Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS) for 2018 and has notified the EPA of its intent to sue because the EPA has not issued its determination within the timeframe required by law.
