GCC Seeking Potential Nominees for Cotton Organization Leadership Positions

Clint Thompson Georgia Cotton Commission (GCC)

The Georgia Cotton Commission (GCC) is seeking nominees for the Cotton Board, which administers the cotton, research and promotion program. The nominees would potentially serve three-year terms, beginning Jan. 1, 2025. Individuals are needed to serve as members and alternates of the Cotton Board.


The GCC is focused on helping the U.S. Department of Agriculture fully realize their commitment to ensure that boards reflect the diversity of their industries in terms of the experience of members, methods of production and distribution, marketing strategies and other distinguishing factors, including by not limited to individuals from historically underserved communities.

The commission is also seeking nominees to represent Georgia as delegates and alternates to the National Cotton Council of America, board members and alternates to Cotton Incorporated, and board members of Southern Cotton Growers.  Each of these organizations serves cotton producers and the overall industry in unique ways and requires leaders to creatively ensure that each organization accomplishes their aims and purposes. Interested individuals should email the commission’s office at info@georgiacotton.org

The Georgia Cotton Commission is a producer-funded organization located in Perry, Georgia. The commission began in 1965. Georgia cotton producers pay an assessment, enabling the commission to invest in programs of research, promotion and education on behalf of all cotton producers of Georgia.
