CAST Board of Representatives

The Board of Representatives is made up of the member societies, commercial companies, and nonprofit or trade organizations and the Board of Directors. Terms end at the fall Board Meeting. Each member of the board serves on one of three Work Groups (Animal Agriculture and Environmental Issues, Food Science and Safety, or Plant Agriculture and Environmental Issues). The groups meet at an annual board meeting and work in the interim via e-mail list servers and conference calls.
