|Groundwater monitoring program seeks nominations for board of directors|
The Central Valley Dairy Representative Monitoring Program (CVDRMP) is calling for nominations of candidates for election to its Board of Directors. The election will be held in November and December 2012 by mail-in ballot. CVDRMP is a not-for-profit association of nearly 1,300 Central Valley dairy farm owners and operators. CVDRMP conducts a representative groundwater monitoring program on behalf of its members, toward satisfying state water quality protection requirements.
Governed by a 12-member board, CVDRMP is organized into five Central Valley districts with two directors each, plus two at-large members. Directors serve two-year terms and may seek re-election as terms expire. Terms are staggered so that only one seat per district, and one at-large seat, expires in any given year. Therefore, six seats are currently open for nominations, one for each district listed below and one at-large (CVDRMP voting members may nominate only two individuals, one for the seat in the District where your member facility is located, and for one the at-large seat). All terms are for 2013-14.
District 1 – Tulare County
[The Central Valley is the region defined in section 13200(g) of the California Water Code.]

Nominations must be received by October 22, 2012; nominations received later will not be considered even if postmarked before the deadline. Sept. 28, 2012 WUD Friday Update
