For Board Members
The Department of Agriculture’s programs are open to all individuals without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or marital status, and it is Potatoes USA’s policy that membership on the Board and its committees reflect the diversity of individuals served by its programs. It is therefore the Board’s policy to have the representation of producers from diverse backgrounds on its board and strongly encourages women, younger growers, minorities, and persons with disabilities to seek nominations to the Board and to participate in the Board’s activities.
The Potatoes USA Ambassador Program provides education and training to board members to enhance outreach efforts. Armed with knowledge about nutrition, production and more, members are ready to bring marketing campaigns to the rest of the industry and consumers.
