The CCOF Big Valley Chapter Elects Leadership!

We would like to congratulate and welcome the new CCOF Big Valley Chapter President Kathleen Schwallie of Blue Egg Farm, new Chapter Vice President Alli Cecchini of First Generation Farmers, and new Chapter Board Representative Chad Crivelli of Live Oak Dairy. 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!
