In this week’s Georgia Cotton Commission update we want to inform all cotton producers in Georgia that nominations are open for positions on the Georgia Cotton Commission board. All commodity commission are farmer-funded and governed by producer appointed members. Each appointment is for three years, and the Agricultural Commodity Commission Ex-Officio Committee can reappoint or replace each board member once their term expires. To be nominated, eligible individuals must be an active Georgia cotton producer. Nominees will be certified to ensure they are active Georgia producers and geographic representation may be considered when making appointments. Appointments will be made by the Agricultural Commodity Commission Ex-Officio Committee in July. Nomination forms must be submitted to the GA Department of Ag by May 26th. For questions, please contact the GA Department of Ag at 404-585-1405, or visit their website at http://www.Agr.Georgia.gov. Information and forms regarding board nominations are also posted on our website at http://www.GeorgiaCottonCommission.org.
