DOTHAN, Ala. -- The Alabama Peanut Producers Association (APPA) is seeking eligible peanut producers to serve on the National Peanut Board.

The APPA will hold a nominations election to select a member and alternate to the National Peanut Board (NPB) during a meeting on April 3, 10 a.m., at the APPA office at 1810 Reeves Street in Dothan. All eligible producers are encouraged to participate.

George Jeffcoat of Gordon, Ala., is the current Alabama National Peanut Board member and Ed White of Headland, Ala., serves as the alternate. The term for the current Alabama board member and alternate expires Dec. 31.

USDA requires two nominees from each state for each position of member and alternate. The National Peanut Board will submit Alabama's slate of nominees to the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, who makes the appointments.

The National Peanut Board encourages inclusion of persons of any race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation and marital or family status. NPB encourages all persons who qualify as peanut producers to attend the meeting and run for nomination.

It is USDA's policy that membership on industry-government boards and committees accurately reflect the diversity of individuals served by the programs.

The Alabama Peanut Producers Association is the certified peanut producer organization in the state of Alabama for USDA.
