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 Mid Columbia district to be filled at the Winter Hort meeting at 11:30 a.m. on Feb. 4 at the Hood River Best Western, Gorge Room, located at 1108 E Marina Way, Hood River, OR 97031.

The Grower Member is currently Dane Klindt, First Alternate is Erick von Lubken, and Second Alternate is Derek DeBorde. The member and alternates can be re-elected because they have served two 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.
