An eight-member Board of Directors governs the BC Grain Producers Association. It appoints members and advisors to a research committee, which oversees and guides any research objectives approved by the association. We are currently in search of new directors. If you are a grain farmer and interested in being on our board, please get in touch with our office. The committee deals with research matters only and reports to the board as needed throughout the year, including informing the board of any relevant ideas for possible future research objectives. This committee gives directions to the business and research managers, who are responsible for the everyday concerns of the research objectives.
If you are interested in sitting on the research committee or have an idea of agricultural research you feel would be relevant to the BC Peace, please get in touch with the office in Fort St John.
