Nominations open for Sask Mustard board position
Nominations are now being accepted for the one open director position on the Saskatchewan Mustard Development Commission.
Directors serve a three-year term and are eligible to run for an additional two consecutive terms. All levy-paying mustard producers are eligible to run, nominate and vote. This means anyone who has sold mustard in the past three years and who has not requested a refund in the past year.
The nomination form and designated voting rep forms are available below:
A designated voting rep form must be completed for anyone other than a single producer. This includes farms run as corporations and partnerships and is needed for the person being nominated as well as those signing the nomination form. You can call the Sask Mustard office at 306-975-6629 for further information.
Completed forms need to be received by the Returning Officer (Levy Central) no later than 12:00 noon on Friday, October 5, 2018.

If there is more than one nomination, an election will be held by electronic ballot with the option for a mail-in ballot.
New directors will begin their term at the annual Sask Mustard meeting on January 17, 2019.
Directors receive a per diem for the days spent on Sask Mustard business. Expenses are also reimbursed. Directors attend approximately five regular board meetings per year and are sometimes called upon to represent the commission at meetings and major conferences that help shape the mustard industry. The board has a maximum of six directors.
Remember, noon on Friday, October 5 is the deadline for nomination forms to be received by the Returning Officer. If the form is sent in before the deadline, there is more opportunity to correct any deficiencies, such as nominators who are not registered producers.
