Alberta Beef Producers (ABP) is proud to be a grassroots producer organization and we need strong leaders in our delegate body.
This is the time of year when we are accepting nominations for delegates to run in the 2016 fall elections.
We are an organization of producers, led by producers, speaking and working on behalf of cattle and beef producers in Alberta.
Our first priority is making sure that we speak and work as effectively as possible on behalf of the industry, and our effectiveness is influenced by the quality of the producers who become our leaders.
The producers who are elected as ABP delegates provide leadership to the organization and a critical connection to the grassroots producers in their respective zones.
Delegates need to be our connection with local producers to hear ideas, concerns and issues, and bring them forward to ABP so they can be addressed.
It is important for delegates to make grassroots producers aware of the priorities and activities that ABP and our partner organizations are pursuing on behalf of producers.
If you are interested in becoming a delegate take a moment to review the responsibilities of being a delegate.
Producers who want to become ABP delegates can find nomination forms on the ABP website, through your local delegate representative, or by calling the ABP office.
Nominations must be submitted to the ABP office by Aug. 31.
The nearly 20,000 beef producers in this province have an organization which represents their collective interests — Alberta Beef Producers.
Run by producers for producers, ABP is dedicated to enhancing the image of beef producers and the beef industry, educating the beef consumer, driving the sale of Alberta Beef, and maintaining a truly sustainable beef industry for the benefit of all Albertans.
