CAWG Board of Directors

CAWG is the only statewide organization that focuses exclusively on winegrape grower issues. CAWG is governed by 27 growers elected to serve on the board of directors. Grower leaders are elected from the seven CAWG districts and serve a three-year term and can serve a total of three consecutive terms. In addition to elected directors, the board can also appoint up to two at-large directors from grower organizations.
