MGGA elects new officers and sets policy direction for 2011
At the conclusion of this year's annual convention in Great Falls, the Montana Grain Growers Association elected officers, installed new board members and set the organization's policy for 2011. These actions put the finishing touches on a successful 55th Annual MGGA Convention that had record attendance by over 800 farmers, agribusiness representatives and guests.
Gordon Stoner, a grain producer from Outlook, Mont., was installed as MGGA President for 2011. Elected Vice President was Brian Eggebrecht of Malta, Treasurer Ryan McCormick of Kremlin, and Secretary Matt Flikkema of Manhattan. Keven Bradley of Cut Bank will serve as Past President.
Directors re-elected to serve another term on the board are Dan Gliko, Jr., Oilmont--District 6; Tom Butcher, Lewistown--District 10; and John Rhines, Sidney - District 13. Newly elected to a four year term on the MGGA Board of Directors are Chris Maloney, Turner, representing District 3 and Todd Hansen, Gildford, from District 4. Gy Salvevold, Culbertson, was appointed to the board as a representative from District 2.
A primary focus of the convention is approval by the membership of the organization's policy positions for the coming year. These resolutions guide MGGA, its leadership and staff on a myriad of issues that directly affect the livelihood of wheat and barley producers. "Our membership has given us clear direction," said President Gordon Stoner, "and we'll do our best to deliver." The approved 2011 resolutions can be found on the MGGA website at www.mgga.org/About/resolutions.html.
