Board Election Update

Due to the unprecedented circumstances that are currently surrounding COVID-19, with support of CDFA and with approval by our current Board of Directors, SCW has decided to delay this year’s Board Elections by 6 months. The Sonoma County Winegrape Commission Board of Directors and staff thought that having current Board Member continuity during this pandemic would be important in ensuring the work of the Commission.

The new timeline is as follows:

October 2020: Announce Board Elections & collect Candidate Statements

November 15th-November 30th, 2020: 15 day voting period

January 1st, 2021: New Board is effective

The current Board Members who would be up for re-election will be serving a 2.5-year term, and the new Board Members who are elected in the Winter of 2020 will serve a total of 1.5 years.

Please let us know if you have any questions surrounding this year’s Board Elections and if you are interested in serving on our Board of Directors!
