Directors

The Virginia Forage and Grassland Council is comprised of people dedicated to forages and animal agriculture and their roles in Virginia’s quality of life. We are governed by 12 directors representing farmers and agribusiness and six non-voting technical advisors representing governmental and educational organizations.

Our membership elects Directors for three-year terms. Directors are limited to two consecutive terms. The Council president, secretary and treasurer are elected by the directors. Technical advisors are appointed for three-year terms by the directors. Officers, directors and technical advisors receive no financial compensation for their services.

Standing committees and organization by-laws direct our activities.
