The National Pork Board is accepting nominations to fill three positions for the Pork Checkoff's Nominating Committee. The nominating committee is responsible for soliciting, evaluating and recommending candidates to the Pork Act Delegate Body. The work entails reviewing candidate applications for seats on the National Pork Board and on the Pork Checkoff's Nominating Committee.
Any producer who has paid all checkoff assessments due, or is a producer or representative of a producer/company that produces hogs/pigs, is eligible to serve on the committee.
Delegates adopted a resolution in 2002 calling for Pork Act Delegates to elect three of six members of the Pork Checkoff Nominating Committee at the 2003 National Pork Industry Forum. The committee will present candidates to the Pork Act Delegate Body at the 2004 Forum.
State pork producer associations, farm organizations and anyone who pays the pork checkoff, which includes pork producers and pork importers, may submit nominees.
Nominations are due by Dec. 16. Direct all application requests and questions to the NPB either by mail to P.O. Box 9114, Des Moines, IA 50306 or by telephone to Lorraine Garner, at 515-223-2600.
