It’s a momentous day. I’m here to announce that voting for the CMU Checkoff will begin on October 15 and run through November 15. It’s truly a time many of us in our industry have thought about and planned for years.

At this point, I think everybody understands what the CMU Checkoff can do for our industry, not to mention our individual companies and for our future. Because that’s what this whole thing is about – how do we create a better opportunity for us all?

There have certainly been questions and comments that have helped shape how the checkoff will look once approved. That’s important to call out: this program was created by producers just like you and me and it will be run by producers just like you and me. So the input and ideas we have as an industry, we get to implement those when the board of volunteer block producers is seated.

If you haven’t done it already, be sure to get REGISTERED. If you haven’t talked with anyone about the CMU Checkoff, give me a call.

When October 15 comes along, I hope you will join me in voting yes for the CMU Checkoff. And voting yes to put block back on top.

Design Escapes
The CMU Checkoff Initiative was created by producers frustrated with continual loss of market share. That frustration was compounded when program ideas surfaced that could drive demand, but there was no way to fund multi-year, well-funded programs that would change outdated perceptions of CMU.
