Global software update issue affecting payment systems
UPDATED: 07/19/2024

A global software update issue affecting Microsoft systems has caused outages for Tipmont vendors. We are currently unable to accept payments in our Linden office. Our pay-by-phone system is also experiencing intermittent outages. Several local banks are also affected, meaning members cannot make payments to their accounts.

Reasons to Attend

Voting in director elections is one of the privileges of being a Tipmont member.

You’ll receive a $25 credit on your Tipmont bill just for attending the meeting! (This higher credit is in lieu of a boxed lunch.)

Grand prize winners will be drawn at the end of the 2023 business meeting — one for an in-person attendee and one for each drive-thru. The member’s name must be listed on the account, and you don’t need to be present to win. Winners will be posted online at tipmont.com.

Drive-thru options open at 7:30 a.m. with locations in Linden, Lafayette, and Battle Ground.

Those that attend in person can visit information booths for Internet, Business Solutions, Energy Efficiency, Operation Round Up® & EnviroWatts® and more.

Annual Meeting

2023 Recap

Tipmont was proud to honor many cooperative members for its 83rd Annual Member Meeting — 1,518 in fact (with 1,372 from our drive-thru locations and 146 members in person). 

Along with our in-person gathering at the Tippecanoe County Fairgrounds in Lafayette, we offered three drive-thru locations — one at the fairgrounds, one at Tipmont offices in Linden and one at Tipmont offices in Battle Ground. This allowed more members to vote in elections and participate in the way they preferred, and all of those attending received a copy of the 2022 Annual Report.
