Last month, nomination papers were mailed to all members for the open board seats. That’s because it’s time for nominations to be submitted for the upcoming election of directors to open positions on the Board of Directors of the California Cotton Ginners and Growers Association. There are four (4) Ginner Director terms expiring this year, including Mike Davis, Wayne Gilbert, Kirk Gilkey and a Vacancy. There are four (4) Grower Director terms expiring this year, including Gary Martin, Andrew Clark, and Vincent Marshall of Fresno County, and Steve Wilbur of Tulare County. The positions are for these specific counties. Nomination forms must be completed and returned to the Association office by Tuesday, November 26, 2019. Please take time to nominate one or more candidates in good standing with the Association (and yourself if you intend to be a candidate) and make sure that each person you name agrees to being nominated and files the Candidate Statement form required to be placed on the ballot for the upcoming election. The form must be completed for each nomination, so please copy the form if you nominate more than one person and provide the form to each person you nominate.
