SPG Accepting Director Nominations

June 07, 2016

Saskatchewan Pulse Growers (SPG) is now accepting nominations to fill three positions on the SPG Board of Directors starting in January 2017.

To be eligible to sit on the SPG Board, you must be a registered pulse grower (i.e. you have sold a Saskatchewan-grown pulse crop and paid levy within the last two years).

Director responsibilities include:

  • Supervising the management of the business and affairs of SPG including oversight of management, providing strategic direction, and ensuring effective governance of the organization.
  • Board meetings approximately seven times per year and attending conference calls as required.
  • Representing SPG at other meetings and events throughout the year.

Nomination forms are available on the SPG website at saskpulse.com, in the June issue of PulsePoint magazine, or you can receive one by calling 306-668-0590. Nomination forms must be signed by three other registered growers.

If the registered grower is a corporation, partnership, or other legal entity, it can designate a representative to vote and hold office. A proper designation form (available at saskpulse.com) must accompany the nomination form for every director nominee or director nominator affected by this regulation.

Completed forms should be mailed, faxed, or emailed to Shelly Weber (contact information listed below). All nominations must be received no later than 12:00 PM CST on Tuesday, October 4, 2016. 

Accountable to and funded by growers, SPG’s strategic direction is guided by a seven member, grower-elected, Board of Directors. SPG’s mission is to provide leadership and create opportunities for profitable growth for the Saskatchewan pulse industry.
