In the recent OTA Board of Directors election, Sarah Bird of Annie’s Inc., Tony Bedard of Frontier Co-op, and Melody Meyer of UNFI Inc. were re-elected to three-year terms. In addition, Kim Dietz of Smucker Natural Foods and Jesse LaFlamme of Pete and Gerry’s have been appointed by the Board to fill the remaining three-year positions. By a nearly unanimous vote, OTA membership approved the Board recommendation to change the OTA bylaws to move OTA’s current fiscal year to the calendar year. In the recent election, a record 34.8 percent of OTA’s trade member companies eligible to vote did so. Congratulations to those elected, and a big round of applause for all those extraordinary members who obtained the nominations to include their names on the ballot. The complete election results are now posted on OTA’s members-only website. The new Board will be seated later this month, and announced at OTA’s Annual Meeting at Natural Products Expo East.
