Policy and administration of RES is the responsibility of an 11-member Board of Directors
elected by the CCRRF membership. Directors serve a three-year term and represent geographical rice growing areas of California. They
are rice growers and serve without compensation. CCRRF works to serve all California rice growers and its policies generally reflect
those of public institutions such as UC. CCRRF cooperates with UC and USDA under a formal memorandum of understanding. The UC and
the California Rice Research Board have liaisons to the Board of Directors. CCRRF scientists cooperate with many public institutions
and also private industry. Organization and policy of CCRRF encourages active grower input and participation in RES research direction.
