National Sorghum Producers to Open Board Director Applications

LUBBOCK, Texas (April 3, 2020)—The National Sorghum Producers will begin accepting applications on April 6 for three positions on the 2021 board of directors.

“We need strong grower voices now more than ever to help advance the sorghum industry and policies important to sorghum farmers,” NSP CEO Tim Lust said. “The commitment of our board of directors ensures NSP continues its first rate representation of U.S. sorghum producers in Washington, D.C., and throughout the entire industry.”

The NSP board leads efforts toward legislative and regulatory change to help create a more profitable, diverse and competitive sorghum industry. Qualified candidates must be a current NSP member and have a passion for representing sorghum growers through lobbying and fundraising activities. No prior board experience is necessary, only a desire to improve the sorghum industry.

Applications are due Friday, May 8, 2020, at 5 p.m. CST. The NSP Nominating Committee will review all applications before making nominations to the NSP Board of Directors for consideration and election during the August summer board meeting. Each position includes a three-year term beginning October 1, 2020, the start of NSP’s fiscal year.

For the application or more information, interested candidates can contact NSP Director of Operations Garrett Mink at 806-749-3478 or visit www.SorghumGrowers.com/leadership/.
