Upcoming cotton caucuses seek diversity

Jul '10
As Certified Importer and Producer Organizations caucus this summer to nominate candidates for leadership positions within the Cotton Research & Promotion Program, board diversity will be an important priority as the Secretary of Agriculture considers potential appointees to the Cotton Board.

In a letter to commodity boards earlier this year, the Secretary of Agriculture outlined his policy to increase diversity on boards and requested that nominations reflect diversity, taking into account the diversity of the population served, size of operations, diversity of experience, methods of production, distribution, marketing strategies, etc.

USDA believes the pursuit of diversity in board membership is an opportunity for embracing new ideas and growth that will enable boards to serve its respective industries better. Central to this effort is the goal of identifying leadership which reflects diverse perspectives and opinions. In addition, members should possess the knowledge, skills, and abilities to represent a diverse population.

The Cotton Board is pleased to join USDA to encourage and support diversity among those nominated to serve as members of the Program's appointed leadership.

The Cotton Board administers and oversees the Cotton Research & Promotion Program conducted by Cotton Incorporated and funded by America's cotton producers and importers. The Program works to increase the demand for and improve the market position of cotton.
