Georgia Farm Bureau (GFB) is taking nominations for spots on its commodity advisory committees. These committees serve in an advisory capacity to the GFB president, board of directors and staff to implement Farm Bureau policy. They also make recommendations to the GFB Policy Development Committee relative to their commodities.

There are 20 GFB Commodity Ccommittees. Every committee has a representative from each of GFB's 10 districts. Committee members must produce the commodity their committee represents. The commodities for which GFB has committees are: aquaculture; beef cattle; cotton; dairy; direct marketing/agritourism; environmental horticulture; equine; feedgrain/soybean; forestry; fruit; goats and sheep; hay; honeybee; peanut; pecan; poultry; swine; tobacco; vegetables and water.

All counties within each district may nominate members to serve on a GFB Commodity Advisory Committee for a one-year term. Every county is encouraged to review their candidates and make nominations to each commodity that is applicable. Please remember that a person can only be nominated to serve on one committee. The chairperson will be appointed for a one-year term, and will serve on the GFB Policy Development Committee.

Nomination forms should be submitted and received no later than Aug. 18. For more information contact Cindy Arnold in the GFB Public Policy Department at cwarnold@gfb.org or 478-474-0679, ext. 5217.
