Leaders wanted to represent Alberta canola growers
The Alberta Canola Producers Commission is seeking four canola growers to serve as directors on the board of directors for a three-year term. This year, directors are needed in regions 2, 5, 8 and 11.
Alberta Canola divides Alberta into 12 regions, with each region electing a producer director to represent the canola growers within that region. The Board of Directors meets quarterly and is guided in decision making by five committees comprised of board members: Research, Governance and Finance, Grower Relations and Extension, Government and Industry Affairs and Market Development.
Who can become a Director?
Anyone who has paid a service charge on canola to Alberta Canola since August 1, 2015 is an eligible producer and can stand as a director. Eligible producers can be individuals or represent a corporation, partnership or organization. In order to be nominated, eligible producers must grow canola within the defined region but do not have to reside within it.
For detailed descriptions of the regions, more information or to make a nomination please visit albertacanola.com/elections or call the office at 780-454-0844.
