Alberta Lamb Producers held its 2019 Annual General Meeting on October 17 in Red Deer in conjunction with the Alberta Sheep Breeders Association's 50th Anniversary Symposium. We saw 41 producers and guests in attendance.
ALP's Chair, Darlene Stein and Vice-Chair, Ryan Greir, gave warmly received opening remarks. The ALP business meeting followed, with Director Acclamation speeches. There were four Director-At-Large positions open on the 2019/20 ALP board and there were four accepted nomination forms received before the August 31, 2019 deadline to be entered as candidates in the 2019 election. As there were only a sufficient number of accepted nominations to meet the number of positions, no election was held this year. Brittany Walker, Josh Korpan, Nicole Schieck and Scott Vuylsteke were nominated producers and were acclaimed to the board. Following the new Director speeches was Shannon Troke from King & Company Chartered Accountants, reviewing the 2018/19 financial statements, ALP Vice-Finance Chair Karl Denwood, presenting the 2019/20 budget with fellow board members and new Executive Director, Ashley Scott, presenting the ALP activity update (download the 2018/19 Annual Report now).
