Recommend a Member Executive for Director’s Seat

Each year at the Marketing & Distribution Convention, manufacturing members elect directors to serve on the Association Board of Directors. During the months preceding the election, a committee works to assemble a slate of candidates for the full membership to consider.

The Association is accepting recommendations for executives from regular member companies to stand for election in Oklahoma City in November.

Those who are elected directors will immediately begin two- and three-year terms.

Nominees should serve in leadership positions in their companies and have a history of engagement in Association work and the farm equipment industry.

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.

If you would like to recommend someone for a director position, contact Ric Kirby, chairman of the Nominating Committee for Directors. His email address is

The committee will nominate a slate of candidates during the annual business meeting on Nov. 3.
