USDA Seeking New Agriculutural Trade Advisory Committee Members

October 18, 2011

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is seeking greater diversity on their Agricultural Trade Advisory Committees (ATACs) they jointly administer with the U.S. Trade Representative. The ATACs are a formal way to ensure ongoing discussions between the federal government and the private sector about agricultural trade issues. The committees provide advice and make recommendations to the Secretary of Agriculture and the U.S. Trade Representative about a wide range of agricultural trade issues. They are very similar to the Industry Trade Advisory Committees that the International Trade Administration jointly administers with the USTR.

To learn more and apply to become a member, visit the ATAC website.

  1. It is nice that the usda is giving opportunity to people to meet directly with the highest levels of international trade leadership in the United States and globally. I just hope that their applicants will provide the necessary competency they are looking for.

  2. It is good to see the USDA seeking diversity. They are seeking diversity in the traditional ways, by the categories of race, ethnic origin, gender and physical disability. It would be good to also seek diversity based on size of the farming operation. The large agricultural operations are those most able to give input to the USDA, since the time involved is a smaller percentage of total expense than it is for the small farmer. The interests of the large operations are often very different than the interests of the small operation.


  3. The better there is diversity in USDA,th better it will improves thecontribution of govt to the plight of the farmer in the economy.Agriculture remain a force to reckon with in any economy and i think the USDA in on the right track.


  4. I am seeking information about exporting hay to the Asian countries as I run a North American Hay Listing Service. My colleagues are looking for information about starting a consortium to export hay grown primarily in the US. Can any one advise?
