The Wisconsin Organic Advisory Council meets quarterly to guide the development of organic education and marketing opportunities as well as provide input on state and federal policy that affects organic agriculture. The Council consists of twelve people who represent organic production, processing, marketing and purchasing opportunities in Wisconsin.
Those interested in serving the organic agriculture industry are encouraged to nominate themselves or another qualified individual to serve on the Wisconsin Organic Advisory Council. Four seats come open for nomination each Spring.
Nominees are evaluated by a nominating committee and approved by the DATCP Secretary and Board. Selected representatives begin serving at the July meeting of the Wisconsin Organic Advisory Council in the year they are elected. Each member serves a three-year term. Members may serve more than one term.
During the nomination period, application materials are available at http://datcp.wi.gov/Farms/Organic_Farming/Advisory_Council. For more information, contact Paine at 608-224-5120 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
