APG seeks ad­vi­sors in all zones to let their names stand at Virtual Zone Meet­ings

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - FARM NEWS - Contribute­d

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.”
