Nominations for Election
Directors and Regional Reps represent growers in their respective regions. As such, to be eligible to become a Director or Regional Rep, individuals must be an AWC member, meaning that they have remitted payment to AWC on commercial wheat sales in either the current or previous two fiscal years, and they must grow wheat in the region in which they wish to be nominated.
The Director-at-Large represents the interests and perspectives of wheat growers across the province. To be eligible to be nominated as Director-at-Large, producers must be an AWC member and they must grow wheat in one of the five AWC regions.
Nomination forms for all positions must be signed by at least three eligible producers from within the nominee’s region, and be accompanied by the written consent of the eligible producer who is being nominated as a Director or Regional Representative in that region.
This fall we will be accepting nominations for three Directors and three Regional Reps in Regions 1 and 5.
Nomination forms can be downloaded from this page. Nomination forms must be received in writing by Monday, October 31, 2016. Please submit nomination forms by fax: 403-717-1966, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or mail: #200, 6815 8th St. NE, Calgary, AB T2E7H7.
Elections for these positions, if needed, will take place at the AWC regional meeting in Medicine Hat on November 22 for Region 1 and at the Region 5 meetings on November 15 in Westlock and November 17 in Fairview.
For questions about our election process, please contact Brian Kennedy, Grower Relations Coordinator at 403-717-3711 or the email above.
AWC’s regional meetings are held in the fall every year. Regional meetings are organized by the Directors and Regional Reps to provide producers with information about AWC, and to allow eligible producers the opportunity to provide input into AWC business. Regional meetings are also held to conduct elections of Directors and Regional Reps as necessary. Visit our events page for dates and locations of this year’s regional meetings.
Annual General Meeting (AGM)
At the AGM, eligible wheat producers have the opportunity to learn more about the work of the Commission over the past year as well as participate in an open forum on resolutions brought forward during regional meetings. AWC’s AGM is held at FarmTech™ each year. Visit our events page for more information.
