Minnesota Wheat Research & Promotion Council (MWRPC)
Minnesota Association of Wheat Growers (MAWG)
Minnesota Wheat accepting applications for Executive Director
The MWRPC and the MAWG work together, as Minnesota Wheat, in a unified, focused, and effective manner to improve the profitability of the Minnesota wheat industry. From research and export promotion, to educational programs and lobbying, their mission is to build programs that have long-lasting impact for Minnesota wheat growers.
Together they are seeking an Executive Director to serve as the principal administrator of both the MWRPC and MAWG, collaborating and building consensus on strategic direction for both groups. This highly-varied role encompasses working closely with growers, partners, research/promotion programs, and developing and implementing educational programs for growers. This hands-on leadership role is not leading from behind a desk, but rather making connections and executing programs across the state.
Candidates for Executive Director should bring a passion for the agriculture industry with proven ability to lead with a rolled-up sleeves approach. They should be able to build relationships and leverage resources to develop impactful initiatives for the 1.5 million-acre large Minnesota wheat industry. The state wide organization is located in Red Lake Falls, in northwestern Minnesota, where the majority of wheat is grown.
Interested persons should send a cover letter, resume, and three references (electronic submissions preferred) via email to AgHires Lori Culler at email@example.com.
Letter of application and resumes will begin to be reviewed on March 1, 2019 with interviews to follow. The application process will remain open until a candidate is hired.
