Nominations Open for Inaugural Alberta Grains Board

Nominations are open for the Alberta Grains, the newly named, amalgamated Alberta Wheat and Barley Commissions, board of directors, a Sept. 19 news release said. Farmers from across all six growing regions in the province can be nominated to run for one of twelve open director positions, comprised of two from each region.

“All it takes to be a director is a good head on your shoulders, and a willingness to speak up and strive for positive change, no matter how steep the roadblocks,” Tara Sawyer, interim chair for Alberta Grains, said in the release.

Directors lead Alberta Grains and advise on its priorities of research, agronomic extension, government relations and policy, national and international markets, and the FarmCash cash advance program, while supporting the commission’s governance, events and industry-focused publications, the release said.
