Nominations Being Accepted for the CAC 2020 General Election

  • Jul 15, 2020

The annual California Avocado Commission (CAC) General Election will be held in October 2020 for one producer member seat in each of CAC’s five districts, as well as one handler member seat. All of these seats are for a two-year term ending October 31, 2022.

Producer and handler nomination forms for these positions are now available online. Per CAC Election Procedures, producer candidates for member or alternate member seats may be nominated by a petition signed by five eligible producers from the district in which they seek election. Handler candidates for member or alternate member seats may be nominated by a petition signed by one eligible handler (aside from the handler organization the nominee represents). Nominees also must complete candidate disclosure statements and affidavits. The deadline for receiving nomination forms and materials is August 24.

A list of the open seats is available on the CAC General Election page.

Ballots for the General Election will be mailed to producers and handlers on September 25, with an October 26 deadline for submitting ballots. Election results will be announced on November 19.

If you have any questions regarding the nomination or election process, please contact April Aymami at 949.341.1955 or aaymami@avocado.org.
