Membership Director Email Sally
Sally began working for the Oregon Wheat Growers League in 2000 as a temporary employee moving to full time employment in July 2001. She became the Membership Director in 2003. This is a specific job title but includes a broad spectrum of duties as time has passed; membership recruitment and management, office manager, executive assistant, and support for the Oregon Wheat Growers League, Oregon Wheat Foundation and the Oregon WheatPAC boards.
Sally loves working with the wheat industry boards of directors, and the membership at large. “Farmers are the best. They are good-hearted people who farm because it is their lifestyle. They are always willing to help a neighbor or friend – the kind of person we should all strive to be.”
She volunteers at church in various capacities: teaching and serving in the nursery, leading worship, and most satisfyingly, with the church sewing ministry “Compassionate Hearts”.
Sally has enjoyed the past 19 years with the OWGL but looks forward to retiring in the next year or so to spend more time with her husband of 40 years and ever-expanding family, and her hobbies that include quilting, gardening, and traveling.
