    We would like to thank the NMB members that will be completing their terms this year for serving on the board and for representing the mango industry. The knowledge and expertise they bring to the NMB truly makes a difference and drives the success and growth of our industry.

    In addition, we would like to extend a welcome to those members who have just been appointed to serve on the board during 2017- 2019. We look forward to working with them to develop new strategies and projects that will continue to support the industry and increase mango awareness and consumption.
