Staff & Committee

The OTB is staffed by a team focused on growing organic sales by delivering consumer campaigns and ensuring our members gain the maximum benefit from their investment in our work.  A small board of directors is responsible for ensuring the OTB meets its legal obligations. 

An elected Committee directs the work of OTB staff and monitors progress towards targets in each work area to achieve our mission.  The Committee meets quarterly to discuss issues affecting the industry.  Each committee member stands for three years.  If you are interested in a role on the Committee in future, please let the OTB Chair know.
