Calgary (Rural Roots Canada) – Should the Alberta Barley and Wheat Commissions amalgamate into one?
That’s the question farmers will be able to provide their two cents on in two virtual upcoming town halls.
The online sessions are set to take place on Thursday, October 21, and Tuesday, October 26.

An online survey was carried out this past summer to gather input from producers as part of the consultation process. Those results will be released during the session.
An amalgamation sub-committee was formed by both commissions after resolutions were passed to explore a possible merger in 2019.
The group put together a draft model of the proposed governance structure, which will be presented, discussed, and will be open to questions and comments during the session.

Both sessions will have the same agenda and format.
Currently, Alberta Barley and AWC operate with two different board structures and one management team.
