County committee election nominations
The election of agricultural producers to Farm Service Agency (FSA) county committees is important to all farmers and ranchers. It is crucial that every eligible producer participate in these elections because FSA county committees are a link between the agricultural community and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
County committee members are a critical component of the operations of FSA. They help deliver FSA farm programs at the local level. Farmers and ranchers who serve on county committees help with the decisions necessary to administer the programs in their counties. They work to ensure FSA agricultural programs serve the needs of local producers.
FSA county committees operate within official regulations designed to carry out federal laws. County committee members apply their judgment and knowledge to make local decisions.
The COC nomination period runs from June 17 through Aug. 1, 2013. Nominations for the position will be accepted by filing form FSA-669A. Eligible candidates must actively participate in FSA programs, own or operate land, and be a resident of the Local Administrative Area that is holding an election. Nomination forms may be obtained from the county office or online at www.fsa.usda.gov/elections. Contact your local FSA office if you have questions about the upcoming election or nomination process.
