Trust Protector Committee Election Announcement

The Trust Enforcers have just tallied up the votes from its first election for the Trust Protector Committee, and are pleased to announce the new members:

  • JYOTI STEPHENS (Nature’s Path Foods)
  • DAVID LIVELY (Organically Grown Company)

A total of 119 qualified stakeholders participated in the voting. Profiles of both newly elected members are listed below.

The Trust Protector Committee is charged with appointing the Board of Governors for Organically Grown Company, ensuring that OGC and other entities are purpose-oriented, appointing or changing the administrative fiduciary Trustee, engaging stakeholders in the Trust, and evaluating candidates to enter our Trust umbrella. We believe that our new members will carry out these functions well and will further contribute to this evolving organization.

We were very gratified by the outstanding experience and character of our four nominees and are grateful to all of them for their interest and service.

We are also very grateful to our two outgoing TPC members, Ellen Ratajak and Jack Gray, who have contributed so much to OGC and the Trust over many years.
