Fresh Pear Committee Nominations
January 28 @ 10:50 am - 11:30 am PST
Pear growers will elect nominees for a position on the Fresh Pear Committee (FPC) of Marketing Order No. 927. The committee is responsible for the collection of assessments for research and the promotion and advertising of all pears marketed in the domestic and export markets.
There is a Grower FPC position for the Wenatchee district to be filled at 10:50 a.m. at the Pear Day meeting on Jan. 28, 2020, at the Wenatchee Convention Center at 121 N. Wenatchee Ave., Wenatchee, Washington. The Grower Member position is currently held by Kevin Stennes, first alternate is Daryl Harnden, and second alternate is Matt McDevitt. The slate can be nominated again, since Stennes has served one out of a possible three consecutive terms.
All pear growers are eligible to attend and participate in the respective nominations. The committee encourages women, minorities, and the physically challenged, who qualify as pear growers/handlers, to attend and participate in the nomination proceedings. Names of those elected will be submitted to the Secretary of Agriculture for official appointment to the committee, and will serve for a two-year period.
