The Operational Management Board (OMB) is responsible for the ongoing day-to-day management of AgGateway and is accountable to the AgGateway membership.
Board voting members are comprised of one member from each active council (designated by that council) plus the AgGateway EVP/Chief Operating Officer. Other corporate officers may participate in OMB meetings but not vote. OMB representatives must be employees or official representatives of voting member companies. Directors are appointed for a two-year term, with terms staggered to provide consistency in the management. No member company may have more than one person serving on the OMB concurrently. The OMB elects its chair and vice-chair to serve for the fiscal year.
The OMB is authorized to execute all financial matters that are approved in the budgeting process or as authorized by the Strategic Board. The OMB is the first level of escalation on any issues that the operating committees or councils are unable to decide; the Strategic Board is the final level of escalation if the OMB is unable to resolve the issue.
