What Our Members Say

We’ve done a good job positioning ourselves as the focal point of the entire onion industry.  The NOA is one of the most extremely successful volunteer organizations in the country, and I’m proud of that.

Robert Woods (President 1992-1994)

The contacts that I made through participation in the meetings was invaluable to me in my career.

Mike Kirby (President 2000-2002)

We only meet twice a year, but the friendships have been lasting. And if I have any market concerns, I know I can call my associates from the NOA.

Tom Uriu (President 1990-1992)

No matter what Mother Mature throws at you as a grower, you just have to keep doing what you know to do and do best, and eventually, it will be rewarded.

Darrell Duda (President, 2006-2008)

I have enjoyed coming to all the NOA meetings. We not only have the friendships, but the business is very important in influencing the industry.

John Swartz, Jr. (President 1987-1990)

Although I pay to attend the NOA meetings, it does not cost me to be here. It pays me.

Greg Bennett (President 1998-2000):

The NOA is a very gracious organization.  I bring something new away from every meeting.

Kay Riley (President 2008-2010)

Good meetings always make you money; they don’t cost you money.  I’ve always benefited from coming to meetings, and so many great relationships have developed over time.

Gary Mayfield (President, 2012-2014)

It diversifies your thinking.  We can understand more about what is going on with the rest of the country—and the overall marketing of onions.  It has been a pleasure to know people from Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and all the Western areas.

Ray Myruski (Long-time Member and NOA Trustee)

The idea that you could pick up the phone and call Paul in Colorado, or John in Lancaster, California, or others in the NOA to find out on any given day what their feel for the market was—that was one of the best parts of the NOA.

Mel Dalton (President 1976-1978)

It is very beneficial to be able to have the camaraderie, not only with other producers, but with brokers, transportation people, suppliers, and other buyers.

Bob Sakata (President 2002-2004)
