Hass Avocado Board Releases Annual Board Election Schedule
The Hass Avocado Board (HAB), whose mission is to promote the consumption of Hass avocados in the U.S., has begun its annual board election process. On April 10, HAB mailed announcements of open seats to all eligible producers and importers of Hass avocados in search of nominations for the positions.
HAB seeks nominees with a diverse industry skill set who are willing to share their expertise in an effort to promote the consumption of Hass avocados. The board has defined six strategic priorities as part of its five-year strategic plan: building demand, nutrition, supply and demand data, sustainability, industry engagement and quality.
Nominations for board positions are due May 8. Ballots will be mailed to producers and importers by May 29; the deadline for receipt of ballots is June 26. The Board members and alternates will be appointed by the United States Department of Agriculture Secretary of Agriculture and seated at the November 2019 board meeting.
