Western SARE Seeking Applicants for Administrative Council Positions

Western Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (Western SARE) is seeking applicants from qualified individuals to fill three positions on the Western SARE Administrative Council. Open positions are those representing the following: 1) non-government organizations, 2) agri-business, and 3) farmer/rancher. The Administrative Council sets program priorities, approves the budget, and makes proposal funding decisions for all grant programs. The term of service is four years, but members can be re-appointed for a second four-year term. Members are expected to attend Administrative Council meetings (currently in-person March and July throughout the region), review proposals and other materials distributed between meetings, and participate on Western SARE committees and occasional between-meeting conference calls. Council members must live and work in one of the 17 states or protectorates that comprise the Western SARE region.
