Grassroots Driven, Member Led
As a grower-led organization, NPC is managed by an Executive Committee and Board of Directors, which oversees its operations and provides guidance on its policy activities. Board members are appointed by the Executive Committee from recommendations submitted by state potato grower organizations and hold office for one calendar year.
At NPC’s 2022 Washington Summit in D.C., Jared Balcom of Pasco, Washington was elected to serve as NPC’s 2022 President and to lead the organization’s Executive Committee.
