MBP Fall District Meetings
Please consider this your invitation to attend a fall 2023 Manitoba Beef Producers (MBP) district meeting in the even-numbered districts where director elections are required, or to participate in a virtual meeting to learn more about what MBP has been doing on your behalf this year. And, we are announcing our return to Brandon for our 45th Annual General Meeting (AGM) February 8-9, 2024.
This year’s in-person meetings in even-numbered districts will start at 4:30 p.m. with some presentations. There will be a break around 5:45 p.m. for a free beef on a bun meal and fellowship. At 6:30 p.m. presentations will resume and director elections will be held. There will also be an opportunity to explore possible resolutions for debate at the 45th AGM or to suggest action items for MBP.
Producers from odd-numbered districts are invited to attend a meeting in an even-numbered district if it is convenient for them, but they are not eligible to vote in the director elections there.
Advance registration is appreciated to assist with meal counts for in-person meetings. Registration for the meetings will be available after September 1.
There will be an evening virtual meeting to provide updates to those unable to attend an in-person meeting. It will be held on Tuesday, November 7 starting at 7 p.m.
Regarding resolutions, if you are unable to attend a district meeting, MBP will have a form available on its website for producers wishing to put forward resolutions to be considered for possible debate at the 45th AGM. That form will be available later this fall.
Re: director elections, if you would like to let your name stand for director in an even-numbered district, or, if you know of someone who would be a good addition to MBP’s board of directors, please contact our General Manager Carson Callum for more details. Nominations for even-numbered districts remain open until those respective meetings. MBP is seeking to fill a current director vacancy in District 6, and District 2 director Nancy Howatt is completing her three two-year terms with the MBP board and is not seeking re-election.
