A new director and a long-time chair share thoughts on the canola industry.

The board — elected at the organization’s 34th annual general meeting — includes re-elected chair Roger Chevraux of Killam. Charles Simoneau of Guy will replace long-serving board member Ian Chitwood of Airdrie as vice-chair. Jeff Frost of Olds — a newcomer to the board — will replace Chitwood in his capacity as Region Eight director.

“Alberta Canola extends our appreciation to Ian Chitwood for his unwavering commitment and tireless efforts in representing the interests of Alberta’s canola growers and addressing the unique needs of his region,” he said.

“His perspective has played a crucial role in the board’s ability to exercise sound judgment and make informed decisions. We are truly thankful for his valuable contributions,” Chevraux added.
