Membership Benefits
 
 
Advertising Opportunities Members receive a special discount for advertising in our Print Directory, E-Newsletters and Web site.
 
Annual Directory Lists all Kansas member and non-member grain, feed and seed dealers in Kansas with one free directory with membership and special price for each additional purchase. Additional information includes feed lots, government offices, and rules & regulations pertaining to the grain industry.
 
Annual Meeting Provides good fellowship and excellent educational programs that address the important issues of the year. The meeting is highlighted with the election of new Association officers, and the passing of the gavel to KGFA’s new Chairman.
 
Arbitration System Resolves the differences that may arise in trade matters. This system, believed to be the oldest such trade "court" system in existence in the U.S., requires that all members submit trade disputes for arbitration if they cannot be resolved. This system avoids the need for costly courtroom litigation while contributing to the timely and orderly marketing of grain & feed.
 
Education Some of the many programs KGFA sponsors and coordinates are: Safety Programs, Grain Grading Schools, Elevator Maintenance Schools, Grain Handlers Workshops, Sales Seminars, Grain Merchandising Workshops and Technology Updates.
 
Grain Theft Reward Program KGFA will pay up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of any person responsible for the theft of commodities from a member’s facility.

Industry Contacts KGFA acts as the vehicle for inter-industry contact through district meetings, correspondence and other activities.

Insurance A comprehensive hospital and medical, group life, dental, salary continuation, accidental death and a property/casualty program are offered through KFSA at a rate which is considerably less than could be enjoyed by an individual firm.
