Notice: Association Annual Business Meeting

The Farm Equipment Manufacturers Association will hold its Annual Business Meeting and election of directors during the 1 p.m. session Wednesday, Oct. 28, at the Marketing & Distribution Convention at the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista.

The agenda will include the election of members to the board of directors, the president’s annual report, and any other business required.

Each regular member company present and in good standing will have one vote on each item addressed during the meeting. The Association is reviewing bylaws related to the meeting as part of developing contingency plans if the Association or the hotel decide the convention cannot be held in a fashion that is safe and meets attendees expectations.

Members are invited to nominate an executive to serve on the Board of Directors. Nominees should be from manufacturing (designated as regular) member companies who serve in leadership positions and who have demonstrated a history of engagement in Association work and the farm equipment industry.

Those who are elected will begin their three-year terms immediately.

Directors are central to the work of identifying legislative priorities, growing membership, raising the Association’s visibility, and stewarding its resources to assure it remains financially strong.

To submit a nomination or express interest in serving, contact Mike Kloster, chairman of the Nominating Committee for Directors. His email address is
