Have your voice heard! Leaders wanted to represent Alberta canola growers

The Alberta Canola Producers Commission (ACPC) is seeking four canola growers to serve on the board of directors for a 3 year term. This year, directors are needed in regions 3, 6, 9, and 12. Visit www.albertacanola.com/regions for a map and information on the regions.

ACPC divides Alberta into 12 regions, with each region electing a producer director to represent the canola growers within that region. The Board of Directors meets quarterly and is guided in decision making by four committees comprised of board members: Agronomic Research, Governance and Finance, Grower Relations and Extension, and Market Development. Descriptions of these committees here: http://albertacanola.com/committees

Can I become an ACPC Director?

Do you grow canola in Alberta? Do you pay your levy? Then yes!

Any producer who has paid ACPC a service charge on canola sold since August 1, 2013 is an eligible producer and can stand for election as a Director. An eligible producer can be an individual, corporation, partnership, or organization. Eligible producers must produce canola within the defined region in order to be nominated, but do not have to reside within the region.

But what do I actually have to do as a Director?

  • Represent the canola farmers in your region, making informed decisions on issues based in research, finance, policy, extension, and market development
  • Travel to 4 board meetings per year. You will also have the opportunity to attend many valuable courses, conferences, and events.

For more information, please visit www.albertacanola.com or call the ACPC office at 1.780.454.0844. Nomination forms are available from the ACPC office.

Nominations for the position of Director must be filed in writing at the ACPC office, emailed to [email protected], or by fax 780-451-6933 before 4:00p.m. October 30, 2015.

The Alberta Canola Producers Commission (ACPC) was the province’s first refundable check-off producer organization. The mandate of the ACPC is to increase the long-term profitability of Alberta canola growers through research, consumer and producer education programs, and policy development.
