Home / Blog Page / CMC Announces 2018-2020 Membership

The Cranberry Marketing Committee (CMC) is pleased to announce members and alternates for the term beginning August 1, 2018 and running through July 31, 2020.


CMC membership includes 13 members and nine alternate members from the U.S. cranberry industry who represent growers in each of four designated districts from the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Central and Western regions of the United States. CMC membership also includes 1 public member and 1 alternate public member. CMC industry and alternate industry members are nominated to 2-year terms (limited to three consecutive terms as a voting member) by industry members from their respective districts. Nominated members are submitted for selection by the USDA Secretary.


CMC members have an important and direct influence over actions and activities of the committee. This includes when and what volume control regulations should be implemented, and what generic promotional and marketing activities are initiated utilizing funds that are collected through handler assessments, federal grants and other sources. There are generally two committee meetings held annually as well as intermittent meetings of subcommittees held throughout the year.


In addition to welcoming the new slate of members listed below, the CMC would like to recognize and thank the following outgoing members for volunteering their time and talents to serve on behalf of the U.S. cranberry industry: Gary Jensen of Warrens, WI; Frank O. Glenn III of Long Beach, WA; George Bussmann of Sixes, OR; Alexander C. Ells of Port Orford, OR; and Jessica Rezin of Warrens, WI.
