Sept. 23, 2009, SASKATOON – Do you know someone who would
like to make a difference in the Saskatchewan pulse industry? The Saskatchewan
Pulse Growers (SPG) is seeking nominations for their Board of Directors for
2010. 


If you are a registered
producer (i.e – you have sold a Saskatchewan grown pulse crop and paid
check-off within the last two years) you are eligible to sit on the SPG board
of directors.

SPG directors are
responsible for representing the 18,000 pulse producers in Saskatchewan.
Directors meet approximately 10 times per year (once a month), and attend
conference calls as required. Director’s terms run for three years.

Nominations will be
accepted by fax, mail and email until 12 p.m. on Oct. 23, 2009. The nomination
forms can be downloaded from the SPG website at http://www.saskpulse.com/about/index.php?page=6
