Think Barley at This Fall's Farmer Meetings
CALGARY, ALBERTA, Oct 28, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) --
Alberta's barley farmers will be gathering from all across the
province this fall to find out how their organization is working for
"Our industry is what we make it and farmers' involvement is key to
our success," said Alberta Barley Chairman Matt Sawyer. "We encourage
our members to come out to our regional meetings and learn about the
exciting work we're doing."
Alberta Barley's regional meetings take place throughout November,
giving producers a chance to learn about the events of the past year,
including updates on research and market development. This year's
meetings are paired with the Alberta Wheat Commission and the Alberta
Pulse Growers Commission at select locations.
Elections also take place at each meeting, giving farmers the
opportunity to select their Alberta Barley directors and delegates.
This year, there are three potential elections for directors (region
three, region four and one director-at-large position). Delegate
positions are available in all six regions.
"Whether you plan to run or vote, we encourage all of our members to
participate in our elections," said Sawyer. "We are a farmer-directed
organization and we need those farmers' voices to be heard."
Following the regional meetings, Alberta Barley's annual general
meeting will take place on Dec. 5, 2013 in Banff. Attendees will hear
about a variety of industry-related topics, including end point
royalties, international trade, research and consumer outreach.
