Cattle producers who want to take a more active role in representing the industry have until midnight Thursday, October 15th to submit their nomination papers for the Alberta Beef Producers.

The grassroots producer organization has been going through some structural and operational changes including moving from nine zones down to five.

ABP is currently looking to elect seven delegates in five zones - the Northwest, Northeast, Central, Southwest and Southeast. Four of the delegates in each zone will serve two-year terms, while three will serve one-year terms.

Given the current COVID-19 restrictions the Alberta Beef Producer Meetings are moving to an online format for this year.

Delegate elections will be held by mail-in ballot or online voting.

An election voting package will be mailed out to all eligible producers with more details.

ABP is also updating its database and is asking producers to fill out the Request for Information Update Form.
