Our Board

Each of our five board members is a Central Valley almond grower. They have been elected by the membership. Once a month, the CVAA board meets to review the co-op’s business and set its policies and procedures.

McFarland almond grower Joe de Moes has served as CVAA”s chairman of the board since 1999.

“At harvest, CVAA is very efficient in handling incoming loads. The end result of what we ship to CVAA is some of the highest-quality product in the hulling-shelling industry. CVAA’s management team is proactive, not reactive, in looking to the future to handle our almonds more efficiently.”

CVAA member since 2000
