Alberta Beef Producers is accepting nominations for delegates to run in this fall’s elections — but they must be received by Aug. 31.
The organization has nine zones, which can elect up to five delegates and one cattle feeder delegate to serve two-year terms. However, elections are staggered. That means this year, there are three producer delegate positions open for election in each zone and one cattle feeder position open in Zones 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9.
Delegates connect ABP to local producers and bring forward their ideas and issues. They are responsible for communicating ABP priorities and activities back to producers, showcasing the value of provincial checkoff investments.
