2016 Board of Directors Meeting Concludes in Sacramento

While St. Patrick’s Day didn’t produce a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, it did bring about the end of this year’s March Western Growers’ Board of Directors’ meeting. Beginning Monday evening and concluding Thursday afternoon, directors gathered in Sacramento to engage on a variety of complex issues facing the industry and affecting growing operations. Larry Cox of Lawrence Cox Ranches, Brawley, California, presided over his first Board of Director’s meeting.

Major topics like water, labor, food safety and trade were covered producing lively discussion and policy debates with the Board moving to take positions or action on a multitude of items. Key administration officials, legislators and staff met with the Board and provided insight into key policy agenda items.

Western Growers plans on to highlight some of the major committee discussions in upcoming editions of Spotlight. Stay tuned!
