Pear Committee Nominations
April 12, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT
Pear growers will elect nominees for positions 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 one Grower FPC position for the Medford, Oregon, district to be filled at the Election meeting at 10 a.m. on April 12 at the Naumes Inc. offices, located at 2 W Barnett St. in Medford.
The grower member position is currently held by Ron Meyer, first alternate is John Neilsen, and second alternate is Doug Lowry. The member and alternates can’t be re-elected because they have served all 3 of the 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.
