The Alberta Pork Board of Directors welcomes its latest members, following an election for two available Director-at-Large positions.
On Mar. 16, a representative from the Alberta Agricultural Products Marketing Council visited Alberta Pork’s office in Edmonton to witness the unsealing of the ballot envelopes and boxes, and to verify the count performed by Alberta Pork staff. Of the 821 registered producers eligible to cast their vote for the two positions, 170 voted by mail-in ballot or in-person at one of four semi-annual meetings held last week.
Marcel Rupert of Rupert Lansink Farms, near Three Hills, rejoins the board after having previously served between 2012 and 2016. Martin Waldner of Hartland Colony, near Bashaw, returns for an extended term after joining the board for the first time in 2017.
Alberta Pork would like to congratulate the winners and looks forward to their participation. Thank you also to Ruben Waldner and Jonathan Klok for running in the election, those who nominated their fellow producers and everyone who cast a vote.
