Resolutions at SaskFlax AGM

Any registered flax producer is eligible to bring forward a resolution at the Annual General Meeting of the Saskatchewan Flax Development Commission. A registered producer is a producer who has sold flax and paid the flax levy in Saskatchewan within the past two years and has not requested a rebate.

Resolutions received by the SaskFlax office more than two business days in advance of the start of the AGM require a simple majority (50 per cent) to pass; those introduced during the meeting require a two-thirds majority to pass.
