Wheat commission candidates sought
The Kansas Wheat Commission seeks a wheat farmer to fill two at-large
positions. These positions — which can be filled by any active wheat
producer in the state — become open March 19. They are currently filled
by Richard Randall, Scott City, and Doug Keesling, Chase.
Newly-selected commissioners will take officially join the panel in
April and serve a three-year term. Members set budget priorities,
establish policies and procedures that determine research, education and
nutrition priorities, plus learn leadership skills and gain valuable
insight into the entire wheat industry. Kansas Wheat Commissioners must
be engaged in wheat production.
Justin Gilpin, chief executive officer of the Kansas Wheat
Commission, says becoming a Kansas Wheat Commissioner is an excellent
way for farmers to become actively involved in their industry.
"Commodity commissioners manage research, promotion and education
programs funded by the checkoff for each commodity," Gilpin said in a
press release. "Participating in the Commission election as a
prospective commissioner or voter is an essential way to give input into
Kansas Wheat Commissioners must be willing to travel in- and
out-of-state, although travel is limited to a few overnight stays per
year. Interested commissioners may participate in international travel
to promote Kansas wheat worldwide. The position is not paid, but
commissioners have all travel expenses reimbursed.
Those interested in becoming a Kansas Wheat Commissioner may send a
resume, plus letter of interest with brief biography, to
firstname.lastname@example.org by March 19. Applications will be sorted and
selected applicants will be asked to participate in a telephone
interview. A decision will be made in April; successful applicants will
