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.
Nomination ballots to elect Western Growers’ Board of Directors to a two-year term (2019 and 2020) were emailed to all regular members the week of June 11th and again on June 20th. Our new, secure online voting platform replaces the old paper-ballot system and focuses on privacy, security and verifiability—all of which are paramount to hosting an honest election.
The nomination ballot is the first step in a two-part process. It lists prospective candidates from your district for inclusion on the official ballot. The official ballot will be emailed to you in September to vote and fill the allotted board of director seats.
Please complete your electronic nomination ballot no later than this Friday, June 29, 2018.
