A number of Agricultural Commodity Boards are looking for producers who are interested in taking a more active role in the industry.

Three positions are open at the board table for the Saskatchewan Barley Development Commission.

The Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission is looking for four producers to serve on their Board of Directors.

Individuals interested in sitting on the board must be a registered producer, that pays their annual levy and has not requested a refund for the 2016/17 crop year.

All nomination forms must be submitted by no later than Friday September 15th and will include contact information and signatures from producers who are supporting the nomination according to the groups mandate.

If more than three nominations come in for the Sask Barley board or more than four for Sask Wheat then an election will be declared and held from October 24 to November 24.

Saskatchewan Pulse Growers is also looking to fill two positions at their Board of Directors Table, nominations also close on Friday.

For Sask Pulse if a registered grower is a corporation, partnership, or other legal entity, it can designate a representative to vote and hold office.

A designation form must accompany the nomination form for every director nominee or director nominator affected by this regulation.
