The American Pecan Council grower and sheller nominations for the 2022-2026 term seats officially opened on Feb. 16. With the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the APC is actively seeking nominations for Council members and alternates for seats whose terms are ending in 2022. The current seats open for elections are based on majority vote. Nominees with the greatest number of votes in either category and verified by USDA will be selected as members or alternates until all official positions have been elected.
In the notice released by the APC, the Council requests that those nominating Members use the form that represents their business—i.e., Growers nominate Growers, and Shellers nominate Shellers. The notice states, “If you are a Grower and a Sheller, you may only nominate an individual in one category (Grower or Sheller). If you return more than one form, all forms will be deemed invalid.”
Nominations for Council seats will be accepted through March 31, 2022. Find the APC’s complete notice with nomination procedures here. Here is the Grower nomination form and the Sheller nomination form.
