Directors and regional representatives (reps) represent growers in their respective regions. As such, to be eligible to become a director or regional rep, individuals must be an AWC member, meaning that they have remitted payment to the AWC on commercial wheat sales in either the current or previous two fiscal years, and they must grow wheat in the region in which they wish to be nominated.

The director-at-large position represents the interests and perspectives of wheat growers across the province. To be eligible to be nominated as director-at-large, producers must be an AWC member and they must grow wheat in one of the five AWC regions.

Nomination forms for all positions must be signed by at least three eligible producers from within the nominee’s region, and be accompanied by the written consent of the eligible producer who is being nominated as a director or regional rep in that region.
