Dear FWWS Member,
There are currently two open positions on the Washington Wine Commission, these being positions two and four. Both of these positions must be held by wine producers, one of which must represent a winery producing less than 25,000 gallons of wine annually. Position two is currently held by John Bookwalter, and position four by Chris Sparkman. Mr. Bookwalter is not seeking another term.
I accordance with RCW 15.88, the State Director of Agriculture appoints the members of the Washington Wine Commission. The Agriculture Director is currently seeking nominees to fill these positions and has specifically requested input from FWWS in that regard. If you would like an endorsement by FWWS for nomination to either position, please send a short email to the FWWS board with the following:
- Your contact information
- A brief description of our background in the Washington Wine Industry including the name, location and current annual production of your winery in gallons,
- A brief outline of your background including any aspects of your professional or community service history together with any other pertinent facts you would like considered such as public relations and leadership skills.
The FWWS Board
