APG seeks advisors in all zones to grow pulse industry

- Contribute­d

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

“I strongly encourage any interested pulse farmers to join the APG team,” said APG Chair Robert Semeniuk. “I joined the organizati­on as an Advisor like most APG Directors. Becoming an Advisor is a great way to get involved with APG. Each of our five zones has available positions and it’s a good introducti­on to the organizati­on, working on committees, and making things happen for Alberta pulse farmers.”

A team of Advisors leads 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 meeting dates. There will be a province-wide APG production livestream on December 5 as well. Please register in advance for all events via albertapul­ event/

In the south, it goes December 5 – Zone 1 AGM in Taber.

Producers must have sold pulses and paid service charges since August 1, 2020 in order to be eligible as an Advisor. Anyone interested in letting their name stand for an Advisor position is asked to complete and submit a Nomination Form by Nov. 9, 2022. Each candidate must be endorsed by another pulse producer from their zone. The form and zone map are available on the homepage at www.albertapul­ .

The Alberta Pulse Growers Commission represents 6,500 growers of field pea, dry bean, lentil, chickpea, faba bean and soybean in Alberta. Our vision is to have Alberta pulses on every farm, on every plate.
