UFA has a unique governance structure which connects our member/owners to our co-operative roots. Geographical areas referred to as districts are governed by a “delegate” who is elected by our member/owners within the districts. If only one nomination is received per district, the candidate may be acclaimed.
Delegates use their Ag experience, knowledge of the industry and community relationships to provide insight and guidance, ensuring the voice of the member/owner is heard.
Delegates provide leadership by being an advocate for UFA and supporting and representing UFA at community events within the district they represent.
In return, delegates are provided with opportunities for professional development that include:
- Governance development
