Agweek and AgweekTV will launch its first readers and viewers board in August. Seven selected members will meet monthly via conference call to discuss issues facing the agricultural industry, suggest story ideas and offer feedback from reading Agweek magazine and watching AgweekTV.

The selected board members will be from different Upper Midwest states. They may include recent high school or college graduates, young farmers and ranchers, agribusiness professionals or retirees still vested in agriculture. Varied life experiences with ties to agriculture and rural life will be considered. Members will voluntarily serve through the end of 2018 and then rotate out to new members.

Interested? Send a letter or email about yourself that includes your name, age, city and state of residence, occupation and relevant agriculture and rural background and experience and information you would like to share about yourself. Also, please include a paragraph about why you are interested in serving on the board. Send to applications to Agweek, Attn: Katie Pinke, 101 N. 5th St, Fargo, N.D., 58102, or email kpinke@agweek.com . The deadline to apply is July 30.
