Apply to serve on an Oregon Commodity Commission

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, and industry counsel.

To apply, each applicant needs to complete an application and qualification form to ensure the applicant meets the minimum qualifications. Search under the agriculture heading to review the specific qualifications for each commission.
