By signing this Contract I, as the above-named business ("Business"), agree to be a participating Co-op Connections business and will give discounts to all Co-op Connections Cardholders as noted in the Co-op Connections brochure. I can provide whatever discount I want, as long as it is something that provides a real economic value to Cardholders. I have chosen the discount described below. I will continue to offer this discount (or a better discount) for a minimum of one year, unless my local cooperative, ROANOKE ELECTRIC COOERATIVE, terminates this Contract as provided below or Touchstone Energy Cooperatives, Inc. ("Touchstone Energy") either terminates the Co-op Connections program or Local Co-op's participation in the program. This Contract is effective from the day I return a signed copy until the day it is terminated as described below.
