The California Organic Products Advisory Committee (COPAC) will meet during the EcoFarm Conference from 12:30–3:15 p.m. on Thursday, January 19, 2023, in the Scripps room at the Asilomar Conference Grounds located at 800 Asilomar Avenue in Pacific Grove, California. Attendees do not have to register for EcoFarm to attend.
COPAC is a state advisory committee created by state law to advise the Secretary of Food and Agriculture on education, outreach, and technical assistance for organic producers, processors, and handlers.
Currently, COPAC has a number of open seats, including producer, processor/handler, environmental, consumer, and technical advisor vacancies. Serving on COPAC is a great opportunity to influence state policy on organic production, processing, and handling and to gain experience on an advisory board.
The agenda for the meeting has not yet been released but should be posted online soon on the California Department of Food and Agriculture website. The link also leads to more information about COPAC and applying for vacancies.
