CALGARY, ALBTERA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/02/14 -- Alberta Barley is calling for nominations to fill three open spots on their board of directors.
Nominations are currently being accepted for the director positions available in region one and two to replace Greg Stamp (Enchant) and Chairman Matt Sawyer (Acme) respectively. Both Stamp and Sawyer are completing their second three-year term this December.
"Representing Alberta's barley farmers has been one of my best experiences in life," said Sawyer. "I've always believed that farmers need to have a voice in this industry, and it has been an honour to be that voice as your chairman."
In addition to the director positions, Alberta Barley is also accepting nominations for an open director-at-large position. Current director-at-large Glenn Logan's (Lomond) term also concludes in December.
The director-at-large position represents the entire province and nominees are currently accepted from every region where a director-at-large is not currently represented. For this election cycle that means nominees can come from regions one, two, four and six.
"It is important that people get involved," added Sawyer. "There is no better way to influence agricultural policy and grow our industry. We need people to step up, and secure the agricultural future for Alberta's barley farmers."
The deadline for nominations is Oct. 31, 2014 and nomination forms are available on www.albertabarley.com.
The elections for directors will take place at November's regional meetings, and the director-at-large will be announced at the annual general meeting on Dec. 10, 2014.
