Commodity Comm. Commissioner Candidates

Overview

Voluntary service on an Oregon Commodity Commission is an important way for the agricultural community and interested members of the public to serve our state’s agriculture. Appointment of commission members is the responsibility of the Director of Agriculture. The Director’s decision to appoint is based on a number of factors such as – but not limited to – applicant experience, commitment to service as well as industry input and counsel.

Oregon is fortunate to have a robust system of commodity commissions. Much of the success of these commissions is the countless hours of service provided by volunteer members as they oversee and manage the important business of the commissions.

Below is a list of open positions and applicant names (with commission position numbers) that have been received by the ODA. There may be more than one applicant for each position under consideration. These applicants are under consideration by the Director for appointment.

To apply, each applicant needs to complete an Application & Qualification form so ODA can ensure that the applicant meets the minimum qualifications. Search under the Agriculture heading to review the specific qualifications for each commission.
