Pear Committee nominations: Handler FPC position for the Medford district
March 28 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT
Pear growers will elect nominees for positions on the Fresh Pear Committee (FPC) of Marketing Order #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 Handler FPC position for the Medford district to be filled at the Election meeting at 9:00 AM on March 28, 2019 at the Naumes, Inc. offices, located at 2 W Barnett St., Medford, OR 97501.
The Handler Member position is currently held by Laura Naumes, 1st Alternate is Mike Naumes, and 2nd Alternate is Gerald May. The member and alternates can’t be re-elected because they have served all 3 of the possible 3 consecutive terms.
All pear handlers 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.
