The Saskatchewan Oat Development Commission has six members on its board of directors. These individuals are oat growers within the province that have expressed interest and were voted in by other oat producers in the province.

SaskOats members are also encouraged to let their names stand for director positions. Benefits of being a director for SaskOats include:

  • Identify and direct research for the benefit of the entire industry;
  • Increased industry knowledge;
  • The opportunity to meet a large number of influential millers, buyers, and government officials across the province, nation and globally;
  • Increased information sharing with other growers to learn what other farmers are doing and have experienced;
  • Increased industry knowledge;
  • Professional development;
  • Reimbursement for all travel, honorariums for time spent on the commissions’ projects and committees.

Please contact the POGA office for information on how to express interest.
