APAS RM Membership
Rural Municipal (RM) Council makes the decision to join APAS as a member on behalf of their ratepayers. There are two type of APAS memberships: Full and Transitional. RMs looking to better understand how APAS works can become a Transitional Member for one year at a reduced membership fee.
Full members elect or appoint an APAS Representative from their ratepayers to represent their RM at APAS and report back on APAS activities. Full Representatives represent the RM's farmers and ranchers and exercise their right to vote on APAS policy, participate in democratic processes, review and amend bylaws, and positively influence the direction of agricultural policies and programs in Saskatchewan. All ratepayers in APAS member RMs have access to APAS Member Rewards. Full membership fees for RM's are set at the lower of ½ mill of agricultural assessment or $0.06 per acre.
Transitional membership provides RM's an opportunity to participate in APAS on a trial basis. Through their appointed representative, they have an opportunity to bring forward the views and opinions of their ratepayers in order to influence policy development. The ratepayers within a transitional RM also have access to APAS Member Rewards. We expect that after their year as a transitional RM, Council will see value in joining forces with other RMs on behalf of their farmers and ranchers, and will decide to become a full member to vote on APAS policy, democratic processes, bylaws and positively influence the direction of agricultural policies and programs in Saskatchewan.
