The Saskatchewan Barley Development Commission (SaskBarley) is seeking nominations to fill three positions on the SaskBarley Board of Directors.
Nominations are now open.
Nomination forms must be signed by two or more registered barley producers. If the registered producer is a corporation, partnership or other legal entity, it can designate a representative to vote and to hold office. A proper form of designation must accompany the nomination form for every director nominee or director nominator of a corporation, partnership or other legal entity.
Completed forms should be mailed, faxed or emailed to:
Returning Officer: Ann M. Smith, Levy Central Manager
Mail: PO Box 21038, Saskatoon, SK S7H 5N9
Courier or in person: 2335 Schuyler Street, Saskatoon, SK S7M 5V1
All nominations must be received no later than 4 PM CST, September 15, 2017.
The producer-elected and -directed Board ensures producers have the resources, leadership and provincial, national and international representation to strengthen Saskatchewan’s competitive advantage and makes certain that producers’ interests are protected.
To be eligible to sit on the Board, you must be a registered barley producer – i.e. any levy paying barley producer who has not requested a refund for 2016/17 (Aug 1, 2016-July 31, 2017).
Director responsibilities include:
- Supervising the management of the business and affairs of SaskBarley, including overseeing the management, strategic direction, and governance of the organization.
- Attending meetings approximately six times per year and conference calls as required.
- Representing SaskBarley at other meetings and events throughout the year.
Voting Process and Results
If a vote is required, ballots will be mailed out to all Saskatchewan barley producers in late October. An electronic voting option will also be available. Election results will be announced in December and officially presented at the SaskBarley AGM in January 2018.
