2015, the North Carolina SweetPotato Commission appointed Kelly McIver executive director of the commission. In her previous position, Kelly worked with NCSPC in her role in the NC Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services (NCDA&CS) International Marketing Department where she assisted the NCSPC and other state agriculture groups to open and develop export markets around the world. Kelly supports the work of the commission in planning, executing and evaluating research and educational programs developed to promote and market North Carolina sweet potatoes. To contact Kelly, you may email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"It is an exciting time for the North Carolina sweet potato industry. Our efforts to continue to entice taste buds, push for healthy eating lifestyles, and demonstrate exceptional horticultural practices will continue to advance this industry into the hearts of every consumer."--Kelly
Cindy has been with the Commission since August 2013. Her main responsibilities lie in the area of finance and maintaining the books for the Commission. This includes everything from processing assessments to reports and presentations to our Board of Directors.
Having been with the NCSPC since 2011, CoCo took a brief detour that took her west. However, CoCo has returned to us from the wilds of Las Vegas.
During her time away, she worked at a non-profit foodbank where they fed over 1.5 million pounds monthly to the citizens of southern Nevada.
Sweet potatoes always being in her heart brought CoCo home, where she resumes duties in Communications for the Commission. She returns with the same passion for the industry and focus on helping to feed our nation and the world.
