USGC A-Team Applications Due June 1

The USGC Advisory Team (A-Team) application deadline is soon approaching. Don’t miss your chance to provide insight and guidance on the direction of the Council and its activities. A-Team members serve a two-year term, renewable without limit at the discretion of the Board of Directors. Current members whose terms expire in 2011 (appointed to the Team in 2009) must resubmit applications if they wish to continue to serve on an A-Team. Members with expiring terms have already been alerted to the need to reapply. Interested Council members not currently serving are encouraged to apply. Applications will be reviewed by the Board of Directors, and new A-Team members will be appointed as part of the Board’s meeting on July 28, 2011 in San Francisco, Calif.

Applications can be found in The GRAIN Center, the members-only section of the Council’s website, www.grains.org. To access, click on the “Leader Resources” section in The GRAIN Center home, followed by “Board of Delegates.” Contact Lyndsey Erb-Sharkey, USGC membership coordinator, at 202-789-0789 or lerbsharkey@grains.org for more information.
