OTHER BOARD COMMITTEES
Through Board Committees, work can be divided so far more can be accomplished than if the entire Board acted on all matters. While a Committee’s primary overall function is advisory, it still has to make Board recommendations, and in some cases, decisions. The Committee’s meet in person and by teleconference calls throughout the year. Our Board of Directors has established three Board Committees:
All members of the Ag New Mexico Board of Directors serve on the Audit Committee. The primary objective is to provide oversight of financial reporting and audit initiatives. View our Audit Committee Charter.
Some members of the Ag New Mexico Board of Directors serve on the Compensation Committee. The primary objective is to provide oversight of compensation and benefit plans. View our Compensation Committee Charter.
- Some members of the Ag New Mexico Board of Directors serve on the Risk Committee. The primary objective is to provide oversight of Association risk management strategies and overall risk profile.
