These leaders are representing you and the needs of your farming operation. Their role in your cooperative’s success is crucial. NEW Cooperative’s Board of Directors is made up of twelve elected representatives from four dis-By Brent Bunte tricts. These directors are elected by the members in their district and serve a three year term. Ensuring a successful farming business is accomplished through quality decision making, and the same applies to your cooperative and the leadership of your Board of Directors. This year there will be one election in each of our four districts. The Nominating Committee will be contacting members to run for the Board for the next few weeks. If you have interest, or know of a member who would be interested, in directing NEW Cooperative and represent-ing your district, please give me or one of our current Directors a call. Once nominations have closed you will receive your voting ballot. I encourage all members to vote and return their ballots to ensure that we have a true representation across all of NEW Cooperative’s service area. The election of Directors will be announced at our Annual Meet-ing in December. I hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to control the leadership and future direction District 1 of your cooperative. We look forward to serving your farming needs this fall. With the addition of over 4.5 million bushels of grain storage and increased receiving capacities across our NEW Cooperative locations this past summer, you will experience the additional value that comes from reinvest-ing in the cooperatives facilities and operations. Have a safe and bountiful harvest. IN THE FIELD
