Nomination ballots to elect Western Growers Board of Directors to a two-year term encompassing 2019 and 2020 will be emailed to all regular members on June 11, 2018. This is a new electronic balloting process and members are encouraged to complete their electronic ballot promptly on or before June 22, 2018.
As a regular member of Western Growers, your participation in the process of electing the Board of Directors is critical to our continued relevancy and influence. It is through your involvement in this process that board members are elected to serve your district and the entire membership on the key issues facing our industry.
Every other year, in accordance with the Western Growers’ bylaws, all regular members receive a nomination ballot. The nomination ballot lists prospective candidates from a member’s respective district for inclusion on the official ballot. Once the nominations are tabulated from the Western Growers Audit Committee review, the official ballot will be emailed to you in September to complete your vote for the allotted seats on the 2019-2020 Western Growers Board of Directors.
Western Growers’ new secure online voting platform focuses on privacy, security and verifiability—all of which are paramount to hosting an honest election.
If you have any questions regarding the election process, please contact Kim Sherman at (949) 885-2265.
