The Canadian Wheat Research Coalition has a new, Manitoba-based president.
Lori-Ann Kaminski, research programs manager for cereals with the Manitoba Crop Alliance, will be adding the role to her portfolio.
Kaminski takes the reins as the organization shifts its home base to the eastern Prairies. A joint venture between the Alberta Wheat Commission, Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission and Manitoba Crop Alliance, the coalition rotates hosting duties among the three groups every three years. As of 2023, it’s Manitoba’s turn. The Alberta Wheat Commission previously hosted the coalition.
As well as organizing the coalition’s annual meeting, host organizations are responsible for “administrative functions, such as research funding co-ordination” and “communications activities, such as website updates and annual reports,” according to a May 25 release from the Manitoba Crop Alliance.Click here to see more...
