The Board of Directors of U.S. Wheat Associates recently elected Boyd Schwieder of Idaho as their new secretary-treasurer. Boyd will assume the office at the end of the 2-day meeting, when the entire slate of officers assume their new leadership positions.

The 2003-2004 chairman, elected last spring, will be Alan Lee from North Dakota. Lee, who was vice chairman last year, has been farming full-time since 1973. He and his wife Terrie grow durum, hard red spring wheat, barley, canola, crambe and flax on their third generation farm. He has represented the North Dakota Wheat Commission on the boards of U.S. Wheat Associates and the Wheat Export Trade Education Committee since 1995. In his home state, Lee serves on the executive committee of the state's Ag Coalition. He previously served on the Wheat Granting Committee of the State Board of Agricultural Research and Education, and as a liaison to the U.S. Durum Growers Association.
