We would also like to thank Brad Samuelson, Bill Thompson, and John Lagier for their years of dedication and continuing support. 
Why does chapter leadership matter?
CCOF is a member-based organization made up of 15 chapters. Chapters are the primary way that our members convey their issues and suggestions to CCOF. The 15 CCOF chapters each elect a representative to the CCOF, Inc. Board of Directors. 
CCOF chapters also offer opportunities to network and strengthen organic businesses, educational programming, and a connection to CCOF’s advocacy efforts for the organic sector. 
This nomination process is integral for the CCOF member-driven democratic governance. 
Thank you for participating!
