Herb Schmidt and Pete Downs, two of the original members of the PD/GWSS Board, will soon be leaving their positions. Their commitment and dedication since the establishment of the Board have helped keep the grape industry alive and well in California.

"It's the hard work and dedication of Board members like Pete and Herb that enables us to continue to succeed in our fight against Pierce's disease and other pests and diseases of winegrapes," said PDCP Statewide Coordinator Bob Wynn. "It was a privilege for the CDFA and PD/GWSS Board to have such valuable members contributing their time and expertise to helping protect California's winegrape industry."

The next joint meeting of the PD/GWSS Board and the PD Advisory Task Force will take place on Monday, January 28, 2013, in Sacramento and will begin at 1 p.m.
