2013 ACPC Board of Directors

February 6, 2013

The Alberta Canola Producers Commission’s Annual General Meeting was held during the FarmTech 2013 Conference in Edmonton on January 29.  Director nominations were held in October, with four directors being acclaimed. Renn Breitkreuz from Onoway will be the new representative for Region 6. Returning to the Board of Directors to serve their second of two terms are Raymond Blanchette from Falher in Region 3, Lee Markert from Vulcan in Region 9, and Marlene Caskey from Oyen in Region 12.

Following the ACPC Annual General Meeting, Colin Felstad from Dapp in Region 5 was elected to serve as Chairman of the ACPC for the coming year. Lee Markert of Vulcan will serve as the Vice-Chair and Chair of the recently renamed Governance and Finance Committee.

Daryl Tuck from Vegreville in Region 4 will chair the Agronomic Research Committee, Marlene Caskey of Oyen will chair the Market Development Committee, and Jack Moser from Killam in Region 11 will chair the Grower Relations & Extension Committee. A complete list of committee members can be found at About ACPC on our website canola.ab.ca.

Retiring from the Board at the end of his second term was Jody Klassen from Mayerthorpe in Region 6. Mr. Klassen served as ACPC’s Chairman for the past two years. During his tenure, Mr. Klassen also represented Alberta on the boards of both the Canola Council of Canada and the Canadian Canola Growers Association.

“On behalf of Alberta’s canola growers, I extend my sincere thanks to Jody for his dedication and commitment to the canola industry and to the producers he represented so professionally at a regional, provincial, national, and international level,” stated ACPC Chairman Colin Felstad. “We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”

The Alberta Canola Producers Commission is a refundable check-off organization representing 15,000 Alberta canola producers in the areas of canola agronomic research, extension, market development and government policy.
