“Each state that produces cotton has a certain number of representatives to the Cotton Board, which administers the National Cotton Research & Promotion Program. We have one spot and one alternate position whose terms are up this year. We encourage anyone who’s interested or has any questions to reach out to us,” said Taylor Sills, executive director of the Georgia Cotton Commission.
The three-year terms will begin Jan. 1, 2022. Current board members’ terms will expire on Dec. 31, 2021.
The Georgia Cotton Commission is a producer-funded organization located in Perry, Georgia. The Commission began in 1965.
