Fresh Pear Committee Nominations
December 8, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am PST
Pear growers will elect nominees for a position on the Fresh Pear Committee (FPC) of Marketing Order #927. The committee is responsible for setting the assessment rates for research and 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 10:30 a.m. at the Pear Nomination Meeting on December 8, 2020, via Zoom Webinar (meeting ID 770-311-467, password 587213). The Grower Member position is currently held by Mike Pflugrath, 1st Alternate is Rod Grams, and 2nd Alternate is Jake Carson. The slate can be nominated again, since Mr. Pflugrath has served 1 out of a possible 3 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.
