“We are encouraged by the response we received to the call for nominations this election season,” says Board Chair Bill Gehl. “These numbers prove what we have always believed to be true; that Saskatchewan wheat producers take pride and ownership in their industry and want to keep building a long-term future. Once again, I encourage everyone to continue this approach as we head into elections, and to make an informed decision on your ballot this year.”

All ballots must be received by December 2, 2015. Election results will be announced in mid-December and again at the Sask Wheat AGM on Wednesday, January 13, 2016 at TCU Place in Saskatoon (as part of CropSphere 2016 and Crop Production Week).
