APG Seeks Advisors in All Zones OCT 8 2020 | Producers | News Release

The Alberta Pulse Growers Commission (APG) invites pulse producers who want to grow the province’s pulse industry while developing their own leadership skills to let their names stand for election as an Advisor in their zone this fall.

“Advisors are essential to the success and continued growth of the commission and Alberta’s pulse industry,” said APG Chair Don Shepert. “Participating with the organization as an Advisor is an opportunity for a producer to develop personal and leadership skills. A team of Advisors leads research and extension activities specific to each of APG’s five zones. Directors on APG’s provincial board often serve as Advisors first.”

Available positions are presented below, along with this fall’s virtual meeting dates and times.
