National Mango Board accepting board nominees

The National Mango Board (NMB) is inviting mango industry leaders to step forward and participate in the nominations process to become a board member. Board members have the chance to contribute in shaping the future and direction of the NMB in upcoming years. The NMB is currently seeking nominations for one domestic producer to serve a three-year term beginning immediately upon appointment. Candidates must meet certain requirements to be eligible and be willing to serve the mango industry by fulfilling board member roles and responsibilities.

The NMB is made up of mango importers, a first handler, domestic producers and foreign producers who dedicate themselves to the mission of the NMB – to increase consumption of fresh mangos in the U.S. through innovative research and promotional activities, while fostering a thriving industry. The board members work closely with the NMB staff to carryout marketing, research and industry relations programs to benefit the mango industry.

The U.S. Secretary of Agriculture ultimately makes the appointments to the board from the final slate of nominees. For each domestic producer position, two nominees will be forwarded to the Secretary of Agriculture. To narrow the selection from many nominees to the two required for submissions, mango industry members in that district will vote to select the two nominees per position from which the Secretary of Agriculture will choose.

Mango industry members who are interested in serving as a member of the NMB should visit for complete details, updates, and the necessary forms. The deadline for nominations to be received at the NMB office is December 31, 2015.
