WPVGA Approves By-Laws Change to Allow Main Office Re-Location
At the WPVGA Annual Meeting in Stevens Point on February 5, 2015, the membership approved an amendment to the WPVGA bylaws which will allow the main WPVGA office to be located in any potato growing region of Wisconsin.
The By-Laws change was approved by a vote of 41-16 at the Annual Meeting.
At its board meeting on December 23, 2014, the WPVGA board of directors passed a motion related to the support of a new project called the Little Plover River Conservancy Area. This is a large and far-reaching project that involves working with the Wisconsin DNR, the Wisconsin DOT and the Village of Plover on developing 140 acres of land near the Little Plover River into a conservancy, along with creating an agricultural education center and a potential new home for the WPVGA office.
The WPVGA Finance and Administration Committee will continue to meet and look more closely at all aspects of this proposed project.
