Mission Statement

The Oregon Legislature established 25 agriculture and commercial fishing commodity commission boards. These boards collect a tax from the growers/fishers and allocate it for promotion (non-branded), research, and education to improve market conditions for their commodity. Oregon's commodity commissions include beef, dairy, sheep, hazelnuts, five types of grass seed, potato, cherries, three types of berries, Albacore tuna, and Dungeness crab.

Description

23 of the commodity commission boards have a public member. A public member must live in Oregon. They can't be affiliated with the particular commodity. Term lengths are either 3 or 4 years, depending upon the commission. All terms begin July 1 and end June 30. Appointments are made by the Director of the Oregon Department of Agriculture. Notice of vacancies, applications and other resources are at http://www.oregon.gov/ODA/ADMD/cc_oversight.shtml

Most commissions meet at least four times a year at various locations in the state. Travel expenses are reimbursed by the commission.
