NEWS RELEASE: Director nomination deadline for barley and wheat commissions September 15
SASKATOON (September 7, 2017) – Saskatchewan barley and wheat producers wishing to serve as a director of either the Saskatchewan Barley Development Commission (SaskBarley) or the Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission (Sask Wheat) are reminded to submit their nomination forms and accompanying information by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, September 15, 2017.
SaskBarley is seeking nominations for three positions on the SaskBarley Board of Directors. The SaskBarley nomination form, designated representative form, and instructions for submission of the nomination documents can be found at saskbarleycommission.com/priorities/communications.

Producers interested in standing for a Director position with either commission are encouraged to submit their completed documents as soon as possible.

All nominations are required to include contact information and signatures from at least two registered producers who are supporting the nomination.
Should the organizations receive more nominations than there are director positions available, elections will be declared and held during the period of October 24 to November 24.
