Notice is hereby given that nominations to the Farm Management Canada Board of Directors are officially open. Members in good standing, motivated to contribute to the governance and strategic direction of Canada’s only national non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and facilitating farm business management best practices, are invited to stand for election to the Board of Directors.
FMC is seeking four (4) nominees to the Board of Directors.
Directors are expected to serve a full three-year term and are permitted to serve a maximum of three consecutive 3-year terms.
Nominees can be from any of the following member categories:
- Young Farmer
- Member at Large
- Academic Institution
However, we must fill a Young Farmer position and either an Academic Institution, Corporation or Association/Organization position to fulfill our Director representation obligations, so we especially encourage candidates for these member categories. More information on FMC’s member categories and eligibility can be found at fmc-gac.com/sign-up/#become-member.
The FMC Board of Directors is further seeking nominees with demonstrated experience and proficiency in at least one of the following areas:
- Business Development and Growth
- Not-for-Profit Sector
- Industry Engagement
- Government Relations & Policy
However, nominations are also welcome from those individuals whose skills reside outside of the above.
Those who are nominating or have been nominated should keep the 3-year term in mind when letting their name stand for election.
Nominations will close at 17:00 hrs. Eastern Time, Thursday May 9, 2019.
After this time, no further nominations will be accepted.
