| ||The Alberta Wheat Commission (AWC) will be holding a director-at-large election during this year’s annual general meeting (AGM) on January 27, 2016, in Edmonton.
AWC issued a call for nominations in September for the director-at-large position and received nominations for: Kevin Bender from Bentley, Darrell Stokes from Hussar, and Jack Swainson from Red Deer.
The director-at-large represents all five regions across Alberta and will provide strategic direction and leadership to the commission on behalf of wheat producers. AWC has posted the candidate profiles at www.albertawheat.com. Growers are encouraged to visit the website and learn about each candidate ahead of the AGM in preparation for voting.
All eligible producers will be given a ballot at the AGM registration to vote for the director-at-large. An eligible producer or AWC member is someone that has sold wheat and paid a service charge or check-off to the commission when making a commercial sale of wheat in the last two fiscal years.
The AGM will take place at 11:30 AM on Wednesday, January 27, 2016, in Hall F at the Northlands Park, Edmonton Expo Centre. It is being held in conjunction with the FarmTech™ conference, but growers or members of the public wishing to attend the AGM and cast their vote do not have to be registered for the FarmTech™ conference. AGM attendees can proceed directly to Hall F.
