New Vision Coop By-laws | Article VIII | Unclaimed Property
Section 1. Unclaimed Property. As provided by Minnesota Statute this Cooperative may distribute any unclaimed property which has been reported as unclaimed property to the Commissioner of Commerce of the State of Minnesota, to a corporation or organization which is exempt from taxation under Minnesota Statutes. The rights of an owner to unclaimed property shall be extinguished upon the disbursement of the property to a tax-exempt organization in accordance with Minnesota law.
Section 2. No Address/Location. Whenever the Cooperative determines that it does not have a current address or location for a member who was previously allocated equity of the Cooperative, or whenever a member fails to main a current address or location with the Cooperative, then, in that case, and before the previously allocated equity ever becomes payable, that allocated equity will be deemed unclaimed property.
