WEYBURN - Nominations opened on Monday to fill four positions on SaskCanola’s eight-member Board of Directors.
The successful candidates are elected by the levy-paying canola producers in the province. Four-year board terms will begin in January 2023.
“For registered canola producers, this is an excellent opportunity to guide investments in canola research, influence government policy, inform consumers and expand our markets. Ideally, a board nominee is the primary decision-maker on a Saskatchewan farm and involved in its day-to-day operations,” said Keith Fournier, SaskCanola’s Nominations Committee Chair.
A board nominee must be a registered producer – any producer who has sold canola in either of the previous two crop years (August 1, 2020 to July 31, 2022) and who has not requested a levy refund in the past year. Requirements also include submitting a biography and supporting signatures from five registered canola producers.
If you, or someone you know, would like to play an important leadership role in the canola industry, now is the time to get involved.
Director’s responsibilities include five board meetings each year, plus participation on committees and appointments to external industry-related boards.
A nomination package is available to download at www.saskcanola.com/governance-regulations or by calling SaskCanola at 306-975-0262 to request a package. All applications must be received no later than noon on Friday, October 14, 2022.
