CPMA and the produce industry rely heavily on volunteer leaders to guide decision making, provide expert input and develop solutions which benefit organizations and the produce industry as a whole. Participation on CPMA committees affords volunteer leaders the opportunity for personal growth and satisfaction in moving the industry forward.

Volunteering with CPMA is an opportunity for members to make a meaningful contribution to the produce industry while networking with other industry leaders.

Please note that your organization must be a CPMA member to volunteer.
