Regional Focus

A REGIONAL FOCUS is a critical component of how the CMU Checkoff would be managed. Development of regional priorities and implementation of programs at the local level is critical to achieve the objective of creating value for all. At least 50% of program funds generated from each region will be spent to support regional projects.
Five regions and fifteen districts are envisioned.

Regional Advisory Committees

Legislation calls for five Regional Advisory Committees–made up of groups of states. These Regional Advisory Committees (RACs) will each have a representative on the board and they will recommend programs and initiatives for funding that will have the greatest impact for their region. The Board will also consider programs that have industry wide impact and/or programs recommended by RACs. The Board has the fiduciary responsibility of reviewing and approving the programs.
