Golden Growers Cooperative will hold its Annual Members Meeting on Thursday, March 23rd at the Doubletree Conference Center, 825 E Beaton Drive, West Fargo, ND. Members will have the opportunity to elect Directors to serve on the Golden Growers Board. Current directors up for re-election for 3-year terms are: Richard Bot, Minneota, MN (South District) and Brady Koehl, Hancock, MN (At-Large Director). Chris Johnson, Wahpeton, ND who was elected in 2023 for a 1-year term has chosen not to run for re-election leaving an open seat in the Central District for a 3-year term.

Our Board Chair Mark Harless (North District) will reach his term limit. We offer our deepest appreciation to Mark for his dedication to Golden Growers Cooperative. We especially appreciate his steady leadership serving as Chairman for the past eight years!

Due to the change in Bylaws approved at the 2019 Annual Meeting, the North District director position, vacated by Mark Harless, will be filled as a 2-year term. If you have an interest in serving on the GGC Board, this is an excellent time to consider the idea!

Any member in good standing is eligible to be nominated as an At-Large Director or as a Director in the district where the member is registered. If you are interested and want more information about district elections, visit our website at or contact us at 701-281-0468 or
