The National Mango Board (NMB) will open nominations for a board member seat serving through the end of 2022. The position open is for one (1) District 3 importer. The nomination period will be open from April 12–23, 2021.
By actively participating in the NMB, board members can shape the future direction of board programs for years ahead through research and promotional activities, while also fostering a thriving industry. Candidates must be willing to fulfill the roles and responsibilities of board membership and meet certain requirements to be eligible.
