(Edmonton, Alberta), November 1, 2017 – The call for nominations for farmers to serve on the Board of Directors of the Alberta Canola Producers Commission resulted in three canola producers being elected by acclamation. The nomination deadline was October 31, 2017.
Andre Harpe of Valhalla Centre will replace outgoing director Greg Sears of Sexsmith in Region 2.
John Guelly of Westlock will serve a second term as director in Region 5, and Dale Uglem of Bawlf will serve a second term as director for Region 11.
Region 8 received no nominations and therefore an election for director will occur at the Annual General Meeting during FarmTech on January 30, 2018.
Directors may serve two consecutive three-year terms on the Board of Alberta Canola.
New directors begin their terms immediately following the Annual General Meeting.
