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.
