Open positions in JDUG

To continue getting fresh ideas, maintain continuous improvement and allow all dealers the opportunity to participate; all JDUG department committees have the open positions of Committee Co-Chair each year. In order to provide consistency and continuity, the term is for a two-year period. Year two of the term enables individuals to follow through on enhancements in order to see them through to reality. Each year, at the annual conference, the JDUG Dealer Members elect new representatives to these committees. Being a member of the Board allows you and your dealership invaluable insight into future solutions, an expanded network of technology resources, an inside influence on the direction of applications for Deere Dealers, individual personal development, and solid friendships that will last a lifetime.

JDUG Board positions require:

  • Elected individuals to be an active employee of a Deere Dealership with Dealer Principal permission.
  • Attendance at the Annual Conference and two hours a month involved in conference calls throughout the year.
  • Email contact throughout the year with the rest of the Board and/or your committee contacts.
  • Attendance at a pre-planning conference workshop generally 4-6 months prior to the annual Conference. (*expenses reimbursed by JDUG)
  • Coordinate break out committee classes and the accumulation of the top 10 enhancements needed from Deere & Company, Vendor partners, and/or JDIS.
