Now accepting nominations for member-elected leadership positions

Help find the candidates to support the current and future strength of our co-op system

Land O

When you consider the challenges sweeping the food and agriculture industries, it’s more important than ever that we remain true to our cooperative roots. Today, Land O’Lakes is a strong and, admittedly, different kind of cooperative that works to support our individual farmer and retail-owners— and our entire cooperative system.

The current and future strength of our co-op system can be traced back to our strong, member-elected leadership. As a part of the Land O’Lakes, Inc. annual governance process, we are now accepting nominations for the corporate board of directors, regional executive councils or regional leadership councils.

As you consider making nominations, whether for yourself or others, please review our updated elected leadership brochures.

You may also click on Governance & Leader Development or contact your regional nominating committee chair to learn more about these positions and the application process. If you do not know how to reach your regional nominating committee chair, contact Member Relations at 1-800-328-1341 or

Once the nominating committee chair is aware of your interest, we will send a candidate application for you to complete. Please note the following submission deadlines:

  • Applications for the corporate board must be submitted by April 30, 2018.

  • Applications for regional councils must be submitted by May 31, 2017.
