Membership Policy Alternatives for Marketing Cooperatives

Marketing cooperatives operating pools that consistently obtain member returns in excess of cash market prices must accommodate new members. In some cooperatives, the membership policy is based only on the capital plan. This article presents alternative membership policies for the acquisition and transfer of rights to original members. Specific policy alternatives for each component are defined and examined. The analysis suggests that strategic planning in some cooperatives should involve explicit consideration of alternatives for membership policy.
