Alberta reps to help chart Cigi course

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Kevin Bender’s term as board chair of the Canadian International Grains Institute has ended but Alberta Wheat vice-chair Hannah Konschuh has been elected to the executive as secretary.

The organization (which provides market development and technical support for Canadian wheat and other crops) is at a critical juncture as it works on details for a proposed merger with Cereals Canada.

Gary Stanford, who succeeded Bender as chair of Alberta Wheat, is also on the Cigi board while Trent Rude of Viterra replaces Bender as chair of the board, which has a near even mix of farm group reps and grain company officials.
