1. Is a member of a cooperative despite termination of membership obliged to draw more business interests, if this is provided with the applicable statute? In many cooperatives, the amount of the shares by the Member to draw depends on the use of the services of the cooperative. So it is usually stipulated that the number of shares depends on the quantity of milk delivered to milk supply cooperatives. The more milk to the cooperative is tendered, the greater is the obligation of the Member to draw more shares. When the Member has terminated the membership of the respective cooperative, arises the question whether it is obliged, even after termination of the membership, to draw more shares according to the quantity of milk delivered. Section 7a of the cooperative act clearly regulates this. Also a member who has terminated the membership a cooperative, is obliged to subscribe more shares if this envisages the Statute.
