Share the experiences you have had that will prepare you for serving on the CVA Board of Directors.
I have served nine years on the Board of Directors, first with United Farmers Cooperative and then with CVA. I was chairman of the board for two years and vice-chairman for an additional four years. I have also completed the Nebraska Coop Council’s Director Certification Program.
Why are you interested in serving on the CVA Board of Directors?
I am interested in serving because I would like to help provide the leadership to keep CVA relevant for the future.
What qualities do you possess that would add value to the CVA Board of Directors?
Being honest and having integrity are values that I strive for every day. I have good communication skills, a passion for agriculture and am committed to being the best board member possible.
Talk about your passion for the cooperative system.
I believe that the cooperative system is as important as it has ever been. Co-ops were created when individual farmers collectively pooled their products together to get better opportunities and pricing. Today, it is about what we can do, how we can do it, and how fast we can get it done. Our goal at CVA is to bring more value to your operation each and every day. You the stockholder, own this company and that can never be taken away. Supporting your local coop is an investment for yourself.
What is your vision for CVA?
My vision for the future of CVA is to ensure this company has the ability to meet the needs and expectations of our stockholders. This includes strong earnings, continued investment in assets, and equity redemption. The most important job a board member has is to enhance and protect stockholder equity.
