The Alberta Sugar Beet Growers recently welcomed Melody Garner-Skiba as a new executive director.

The ASBG is a marketing board that represents more than 200 sugar beet growers in southern Alberta.
“We are excited to welcome Melody to the sugar beet industry,” said ASBG President Arnie Bergen-Henengouwen in a release. “Melody has a strong history of building relationships and association management that will serve our growers and stakeholders well as we move this industry forward.”
Garner-Skiba has worked with Lethbridge Family Services and served as the president of the Lethbridge chamber, but now, she’s going back to her roots. She grew up on farm and later on did some ranching with her family.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for me to direct my passion for agriculture, advocacy, and member engagement to elevate the sugar beet industry as it continues to help drive the local economy,” said Garner-Skiba in a release. “I am looking forward to meeting all our producers and stakeholders as we work together to build a stronger sugar beet industry.”
