Nominations Open For Produce Safety Advisory Council

The Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection is accepting nominations for the Produce Safety Advisory Council. Two seats are available: one for a representative of a nonprofit education institution, and one for a representative of a produce business.

Members of the PSAC serve two-year terms, and the council meets quarterly. The PSAC advises DATCP’s Division of Food and Recreational Safety in establishing and achieving produce safety goals, represents constituency groups, and recommends solutions to challenges facing Wisconsin produce growers in complying with the Produce Safety Rule.

Members must attend all full meetings and subcommittee meetings as assigned. The council meets on the third Wednesday of the month in February, May, August, and November.

The PSAC chair will evaluate nominees in consultation with DATCP and present recommendations to the council for review and suggested approval. DATCP will send official notice of PSAC membership appointment once candidates are selected. New members must start their term at the council’s next quarterly meeting. Nomination forms should explain why nominees would be valuable additions to the PSAC and preferably include two letters of support. DATCP will take nominations until the vacancies are full.
