COC Elections

Farm Service Agency County Committee Elections Launch June 15

The nomination period for USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) County Committees runs June 15 through Aug. 1, 2018, and elections will take place starting in November.

County committees are unique to FSA and serve as a direct link between agricultural communities across the country and USDA. FSA’s been across the country interviewing current committee members to spotlight their involvement in their county. Read what they have to say and check back each week.

For more information on FSA county committees, visit www.fsa.usda.gov/elections.
