This week we hold our annual fall board meeting. The WMC board, comprised of grower representatives from our eight-member state wheat commissions, and representatives from other sectors of the wheat industry, meets twice annually for in person meetings to review the financial management of the organization, and review the work conducted by the board committees. The WMC board is plays a vital role in keeping WMC leadership apprised of market and industry trends and guiding long term strategy and planning to ensure that we meet our mission to support and promote the U.S. wheat industry. Also, the technical team is testing and evaluating the finalists in the National Wheat Yield Competition to meet quality standards.
