The vacancies are for two industry members.

One member is to be a company representative whose principal business is located out-of-state and is registered with the California Department of Food and Agriculture.

The other member is to be a citizen or resident of the state of California and employed by a California egg company that is a registered California egg handler whose entire layer population is under 50,000.
