One of the most important events that takes place at the annual Tri-State Grain Growers Convention is the annual meeting of the Washington Association of Wheat Growers (WAWG) where members review the association’s resolutions, update and vote on them. This year, in light of the convention’s cancellation thanks to COVID-19 and social distancing guidelines, WAWG will be holding a separate annual meeting on Dec. 1.
While some officers and staff will meet in person, members are encouraged to take part by joining virtually.
“Our resolutions help direct WAWG’s advocacy efforts throughout the year,” said Ryan Poe, WAWG president. “Every year we review our resolutions and update them as necessary. We use them to guide our actions and responses both in Olympia and Washington, D.C.”
Michelle Hennings, executive director of WAWG, said that as a grower-led organization, WAWG needs its members’ input to update the resolutions.
“With everything that has been happening this year, it is more important than ever that our members provide guidance,” she said.
Details of the annual meeting are still being decided. More information will be posted on our website and in our weekly Greensheet email letter as it becomes available. All members are welcome to join.
