Rick Istead has been a long term player in the Canadian agriculture scene having worked for Syngenta Crop Protection Canada Inc. and its predecessor companies for almost 34 years in both eastern and western Canada and at its international headquarters in Basel, Switzerland. Responsibilities over that period included early stage research, product development, technical service, regulatory affairs and most recently the marketing of Syngentas seed treatment products.

Since 2006 Rick has been supporting the Alberta Winter Wheat Producers Commission and the newly created Alberta Wheat Commission as their Executive Director helping the boards of both organizations build a new vision and strategy for the wheat industry in the province and in Canada. Now fully retired, Rick likes to keep active through his involvement in Rotary, where he is past President of the Rotary Club of Calgary Fish Creek (2009-2010), current Chair of the District 5360 Youth Exchange Committee, Rotary Leadership Institute facilitator and North American Youth Exchange Network (NAYEN) board member. Rick also keeps active by volunteering at the Calgary Interfaith Food Bank and the Calgary Zoo. Golfing and gardening in the summer and curling in the winter rounds out his list of hobbies.

This special Calgary South Club internal awards program was established in 2006 to recognize the outstanding contribution of club members who take on significant responsibilities and commitments in furthering the work of our club.

The award is named the “Cleven Award” in honour of and recognition of the first president of the Rotary Club of Calgary South chartered as the Manchester Rotary Club in 1955. Harry Cleven was a very active Calgary community leader and a well-known and respected business man. He was one of 62 people who were killed in the crash of a TransCanada Airlines flight which crashed on Mt. Slesse near Chilliwack on December 9th 1956. He made many positive contributions to the startup and a strong foundation for our Rotary Club.

We already have twenty-three members in this special program and expect to induct another two or three this year. New members are nominated by club members with a review by a committee, followed by our club Board of Directors support
