The Order is administered by an 18 member Board comprised of producers, handlers and one public member, plus alternates for each. The members will serve for a three-year term of office. Need and Use of the Information: Various forms were developed by the Board for persons to file required information relating to tart cherry inventories, shipments, diversions and other needed information to effectively carry out the requirements of the Order.
