The Northeast SARE Technical Committee is a group of farmers, Extension educators, researchers, non-profit and government staff, and other professionals who work with farmers. Each year, Technical Committee members serve on grant review panels to contribute their experience and expertise to review and rank proposals for all of our grant programs. These recommendations are provided to the Administrative Council for final award selections.
Technical Committee members are located throughout the region and bring a wide range of agricultural expertise to the committee to represent the diversity of agriculture in our region.
Members are widely recruited; applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year. The anticipated time commitment for members is two days per year for a term of three years. Any committee-related expenses incurred are covered by Northeast SARE, and farmers or other self-employed individuals and non-profit representatives serving as members may receive a per diem stipend. We welcome interested candidates to submit a description of their agriculturally-relevant experience, specific subject matter expertise, and their full contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
