Today’s policy call started with a warm farewell to the Commodity Market Council’s long-standing president, Christine Cochran. Former senior vice-president and recently-appointed president, Sanjeev Joshipura, began by sharing how deeply Cochran will be missed and how proud all of CMC is of her as she takes the next step in her career as the Executive Director of the Grains Food Foundation. Cochran followed by reinforcing the confidence she and the rest of the membership has in Joshipura’s leadership and the continued success of CMC. The policy call continued with an overview of recent events affecting CMC. Joshipura summarized the testimony Tom Erickson delivered last Tuesday to the Senate Ag Committee on behalf of CMC and the pressing issues affecting its membership, as well as the recent comment letter CMC drafted for Representative Issa.
