Join Us for the Annual Meeting December 16

We’re taking a new approach and meeting at a new location for MaxYield Cooperative’s annual meeting, and we hope you can join us.

WHEN: Tuesday, Dec. 16. Doors open at 9:30 a.m., snacks and refreshments will be served, and the meeting will be called to order at 10 a.m.

WHERE: Wild Rose Casino, Emmetsburg.

WHAT: MaxYield will present the cooperative’s audit, board chairman Howard Haas will deliver the chairman’s message, and Keith Heim, CEO, will also speak. Board election results will be announced. The board will meet after the annual meeting is adjourned.

“These changes are a reflection of the times,” said Howard Haas, MaxYield’s board chairman. “We’re trying a new, less formal format and different location for the annual meeting to attract more attendees.”

Meet your board candidates
This year’s board candidates include incumbents Dave Garrelts of Ayrshire, from MaxYield’s central area; Jim Black of Algona, from MaxYield’s central area; and Don Hejlik of Britt, from MaxYield’s east area.

The three candidates are running unopposed, since no other candidates stepped forward before the Aug. 31 deadline. “We appreciate these incumbents’ willingness to serve again,” Haas said.

All of MaxYield’s Class A members received a letter earlier this year notifying them that they could run for the open positions, Haas noted. “Nobody is entrenched on this board, and it’s not a closed club. We welcome new candidates to run for the board for a three-year term.”

Serving on the board is an enjoyable learning experience, Haas added. “It’s a good group of people who care about the future of MaxYield. We look forward to visiting with you at the annual meeting.”
