During its annual August board meeting, the National Sorghum Producers board of directors elected new officers and appointed one new individual to the board, which will go into effect Oct. 1.
Vice Chairman J.B. Stewart of Keyes, Okla., was elected to the chairman’s seat, while Chairman Terry Swanson from Walsh, Colo., was re-elected to the board, taking the past chairman position. James Born, an existing director from Perryton, Texas, was elected to serve as vice chairman for the 2013 fiscal year.
Sam Simmons of Harlingen, Texas, and Greg Krissek of Colwich, Kan., were reappointed to the board after their previous terms expired. The NSP board also welcomed Director Blake Tregellas of Perryton, Texas, who replaces Daniel Krienke, whose term expired.
Krienke served on the board of directors since 2000 and was instrumental from a leadership standpoint in the development and passage of the sorghum checkoff. He has was a spokesman for fellow producers countless times in Washington, D.C., and officials thanked him for volunteerism.
