Governance

Membership

The Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan (APAS) serves Saskatchewan’s agricultural producer's interests through direct voluntary membership of rural municipalities. When a rural municipality decides to join APAS, all ratepayers in that RM become members of APAS. Each member RM must elect or appoint an APAS Representative. 

Representatives

Each APAS Representative is responsible for gathering producer input from their RM to bring to APAS policy discussions and to bring information on APAS policy positions and activities back to the agricultural producers in their rural municipality. APAS Representatives are eligible to vote at general meetings, can run for and elect Directors for their Districts and sit on APAS Policy Committees. Ratepayers elect their APAS Representatives to four-year terms at the same time as rural municipal elections. The next APAS Representative election will take place on November 9, 2020. Nominations open on July 13 and close on October 7, 2020.
