View from the Cab: SSGA fills seats

During its annual meeting on March 12, the Specialty Soya and Grains Alliance (SSGA) held board elections to fill two open seats.

Gail Donkers of the Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council was reelected, while Bryan Severs of the Illinois Soybean Association joined the board.

“I'm excited to help SSGA from the farmer standpoint and learn more about the transportation aspect of specialty crops,” Severs said. “I'm really looking forward to getting to know the current board members as we continue to help the farmers across the country increase their bottom line.”

Later in the meeting, board positions were voted on. Bob Sinner, with SB&B Foods, was reelected as SSGA chair, Bryan Stobaugh of the Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council was tabbed as vice chair, while Severs was selected to serve as secretary/treasurer.

“Being able to work with the quality of people we have in the membership and on the board has been an honor,” said Sinner. “I am honored and humbled to serve as the SSGA chair for another year and look forward to what we can accomplish in 2024.” 

With a mission to build, grow and sustain a reliable supply chain that ensures integrity of the end product, with a commitment to quality, stewardship and innovation, SSGA’s eight-person board works to promote and enhance value throughout the supply chain, from farmer to food business.

“Change, movement, establishment, creation and work lead to the success of specialty grains and soy,” Stobaugh said. “It is an honor to serve the members of SSGA in this next year as their vice chair.”

SSGA’s annual meeting was held in conjunction with the Transportation Go! conference March 13-14, the premier conference for soybean and grain transportation and trade issues in the Midwest. Hosted by SSGA, the event brings in the industry’s top stakeholders, from boots-on-the-ground commodity growers and organizations to traders and shippers of specialty crops.
