The Cotton Board has been pleased over the last several years to join with the industry's certified producer organizations to encourage and support diverse representation within the Cotton Research & Promotion Program. With this continued goal in mind, the Board has created two new advisory positions for the purpose of adding insight on production, promotional, and research issues affecting minority, young, and under-represented cotton producers.
The Advisors will be a non-voting advisor to the Board appointed by the Secretary to serve for a term of three years. Expenses for travel and other required participation is reimbursed in the same manner as Board Members and Alternates. He/she will be invited to attend the three regular Cotton Board meetings held each year. All advisors will be assigned to Program and other committees of the Cotton Board, similarly to Members and Alternates.
