NBB governing board elections will capture diverse membership

By | October 25, 2010
The National Biodiesel Board membership includes state, national, and international feedstock processor organizations, biodiesel suppliers, fuel marketers and distributors, and technology providers. All will have a voice at the November meeting where members will elect representatives to serve on the governing board.

NBB member elections were carefully designed to reflect the trade association's unique makeup and accompanying complexity. Members elect representatives in farmer, render/producer, producer and at-large categories.

The elections include both a straight and weighted voting selection process. The straight voting (one vote per voting member) elects one candidate from the farmer category, one candidate from the render/producer category and two candidates from the producer category. The weighted voting (member votes are calculated in consideration of total financial contribution to NBB) elects three candidates at-large. Candidates serve two-year terms. The election of officers-chairman, vice-chairman, secretary and treasurer-follows the governing board election. All officers serve a one-year term.

Seven of the 15 directors' terms are set to expire, including Greg Anderson, farmer; Greg Hopkins, producer; David Lyons, at-large; Denny Mauser, producer; Doug Smith, producer/renderer; Robert Stobaugh, at-large; and David Womack, at-large.

The election will be held at the Nov. 15-17 NBB member meeting in St. Louis. The NBB governing board directs the strategic planning, project development and overall direction of the NBB. All NBB members are encouraged to participate.
