From the original documents of the The Lubbock Cotton Exchange founded in 1947: 

"The purpose for which it is formed is to maintain a cotton exchange with powers to provide and maintain suitable rooms for the conduct of their business, and to establish and maintain unformity in commercial usages in cities and towns; to acquire, preserve, and disseminate valuable business information; to adopt rules, regulations, and standards of classification which shall govern all transactions connected with the cotton trade and with other commodities where standards and classifications are required; and generally to promote the interest of trade and increase the facilities of commercial transactions."

__________________________________________

Although times have certainly changed since these documents were incorporated; the Cotton Exchange serves as a reminder of our cotton heritage.  We have members from across the United States who serve both domestic and foreign markets. Our members participate in the production, buying, selling, financing, trading, and shipping cotton worldwide.  Technological advances and the global scope of business have altered our ways of trading, mostly for the better.  But we still adhere to many of the original intentions such as disseminating valuable business information, establishing uniform trading rules, and promoting the general interest of cotton trade.
