5-22-18 At a Special Meeting held by conference call on Thursday, May 17, 2018 the Commissioners voted to accept the proposal from the Oregon Beef Council to provide Administrative Services. An Interagency Agreement will be prepared and once all the appropriate parties have signed off Dana Branson, the outgoing Administrator, will begin transitioning duties.
The Oregon Sweet Cherry Commission (OSCC) was formed in 1989 by a majority vote of cherry growers in the state. The purpose of the commission is to coordinate assessment revenue collected for research to improve agricultural practices and cherry production and to participate in promotional efforts to increase cherry sales domestically and internationally.
This website is being set up as a centralized contact point for OSCC activities and to help share industry information with cherry growers around the state. Please feel free to contact the OSCC office with your suggestions and comments.
Future Meeting Note: The next OSCC 2018-19 budget hearing and regular meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, June 5, 2018 beginning at 2:00 p.m. following the Pre-harvest cherry tour in The Dalles, OR. It will be held on the Columbia Gorge Community College campus 400 E. Scenic Dr., The Dalles, OR in Building 1, Room 1.166. The agenda is posted under the OSCC Board tab.
