GCC seeks nominees for cotton leadership positions

Posted on Jun 06, 2024 at 8:48 AM

In July, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) will convene a caucus of certified producer organizations representing cotton producers in Georgia to nominate individuals to serve as members and alternates on the Cotton Board, which administers the Cotton Research & Promotion Program, for three-year terms beginning Jan. 1, 2025, as current board members’ terms expire on Dec. 31, 2024. 

The Georgia Cotton Commission (GCC) is seeking nominees for vacant positions. The GCC is focused on helping the USDA fully realize its commitment to ensure that boards reflect the diversity of their industries in terms of the experience of members, methods of production and distribution, marketing strategies and other distinguishing factors, including by not limited to individuals from historically underserved communities.

In addition, the GCC is seeking nominees to represent Georgia as delegates and alternates to the National Cotton Council of America, board members and alternates to Cotton Incorporated, and board members of Southern Cotton Growers.  Each of these organizations serves cotton producers and the overall industry in unique ways and requires well-rounded producer leaders to creatively ensure that each organization accomplishes their aims and purposes.  Interested individuals should email the GCC office at
