PGMS Adds Supplier Member to Board of Directors

PaulaSliefertwebBy a vote of 153-12, members of PGMS voted electronically to slightly amend the Society’s Bylaws in terms of how a Supplier Member is selected for the Board of Directors.

Section 501 of the Society’s Bylaws defines the composition of the Board of Directors which includes “up to two (2) representative of the Supplier category of membership.” Prior to the recent vote, the Supplier representative was selected purely by other Supplier Members. The amendment, however, allows the sitting Board to make the final selection based on the vote of the Supplier Members.

While the Supplier member to the Board has full voting privileges, he or she may not serve as a member of the Executive Committee.

PGMS President Walt Bonvell, CGM reported that as a result of a ballot among Supplier Members and discussions of the rest of the Board of Directors, he has appointed Paula Sliefert of The Toro Company to be the first Supplier Member on the Board. He also expressed, on behalf of the full Board, appreciation to Ken Taylor of John Deere Company and Lynda Wightman of Hunter Industries for their willingness to be considered to serve on the Board.
