Governor Dalrymple will attend the Golden Growers Cooperative Annual Meeting, Thursday, March 24th at the West Fargo, ND Cambria Conference Center starting at 9:00 am.
Golden Growers has been informed that North Dakota Governor Dalrymple has accepted the invitation to speak at Thursday’s annual meeting.
Governor Dalrymple was on the Organizational Board of Directors for the Cooperative during its formative years from 1994-1995 when the ProGold corn milling plant was conceived. Dalrymple played a significant role on the Organizational Board due to his relationships with local and state officials. This was most important during the site selection process which eventually named Wahpeton, ND the favored location for the $260 million plant.
In addition to Governor Dalrymple’s address, United Sugars Corporation President Matt Wineinger will share his thoughts on the current state of the food sweetener business. Wineinger has a unique perspective due to his prior responsibilities as the President of Bulk Ingredients for Tate and Lyle, PLC and his current role for United Sugars Corporation in the marketing of both beet and cane sugar.
The Golden Growers Cooperative annual meeting begins at 9:00 am with short courses on farm transition planning, sustainability, and corn marketing. The business meeting begins at 10:00 am. Governor Dalrymple is anticipated to speak shortly after 10:00 am. Matt Wineinger’s presentation will occur at approximately 10:45 am.
