California Department of Food and Agriculture announces Nursery Advisory Board vacancy

The California Department of Food and Agriculture’s Pest Exclusion Branch is announcing two midterm vacancies on the Nursery Advisory Board.

The board is composed of 12 voting members, each representing an establishment with a valid California License to Sell Nursery Stock. No two members shall represent the same organization.

Members will represent a wide spectrum of the nursery industry, and the Board will be geographically representative of the nursery industry in California.

The term of office for board members is four years. These positions are mid-term appointments and the terms end on Jan. 31, 2025.

Members typically meet twice per year, but can meet more frequently if needed. The members receive no compensation but are entitled to payment of necessary traveling expenses in accordance with the rules of the California Department of Human Resources.

In addition, the board includes up to nine nonvoting ex officio members from the County Agricultural Commissioner and Sealers Association, the University of California, and groups affiliated with the nursery industry.

The mission of the Nursery Advisory Board is to grow and maintain a strong relationship between CDFA and the nursery industry in order to secure the industry’s future. The board facilitates communication between state and federal regulators and the nursery industry, and it advises CDFA’s Nursery Services Program on policies, fees, and other issues concerning nurseries and nursery stock.

Individuals interested in being considered for this Board appointment should send a brief resumé to Board Manager Juan Koponen by May 17 at California Department of Food and Agriculture, Pest Exclusion Branch, 1220 N St., Room 344, Sacramento, CA 95814, Attention: Juan Koponen.
