CANADA(ommodity Online): Saskatchewan Pulse Growers (SPG) will be running an election for two open positions for three year terms on its Board of Directors. Elections will take place by mail and voter packages will be sent out the week of November 13th to all registered pulse growers. Registered pulse growers have the opportunity to select up to two candidates from the five nominees.

The five nominees include John Bennett from Biggar, Vicki Dutton from Paynton, Robert A. Hundeby from Elbow, Trevor Simpson from Moose Jaw, and Tim Wiens from Herschel. Profiles for each candidate can be found on the SPG website at www.saskpulse.com. All five candidates will also be featured on the CJWW 600 Let’s Talk Ag program at 12:30 PM on Wednesday, November 21, 2012, to discuss their priorities for the pulse industry.

To be considered a registered pulse grower, growers must have sold a pulse crop and paid check-off to SPG in the last two crop years (between September 1, 2010, and August 31, 2012). Registered pulse growers who do not receive a voter package in the mail should contact SPG’s office at 306-668-0590 before November 26, 2012.

A cash ticket may need to be produced to confirm eligibility to vote. Voter packages will include a booklet with candidate information and the ballot, an envelope to seal the ballot in, and a postage paid return envelope addressed to the SPG Returning Officer at Ernst & Young LLP. Ballots must be received by the Returning Officer no later than 4:00 PM on December 6, 2012.

The election results will be announced mid-December and at SPG’s Annual General Meeting on January 7, 2013, held in conjunction with Pulse Days 2013.
