The Alberta Wheat Commission is seeking nominations for two directors and three regional representatives for the Central Alberta area.
The positions are available for regions 2 and 4, with those elected to provide strategic direction and leadership to the commission.
“We are looking for individuals who are committed to advancing the interests of Alberta wheat producers and dedicated to further developing AWC’s strategic direction,” said Kent Erickson, chairman of the commission’s board of directors.
“Our industry is going through significant change, and being in a leadership role gives you the best opportunity to voice your opinion on behalf of your region and make a difference.”
Written nominations must be filed at the commission’s office by Oct. 31, with elections scheduled for November. The Region 2 meeting will takes place at the Three Hills Community Memorial Centre on Nov. 19, and the Region 4 meeting at the Camrose Best Western Plus on Nov. 17. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m.
