  • Title: DPC History - Dairy Practices Council
    Descriptive info: The History of the Dairy Practices Council.. The Dairy Practices Council began as the Northeast Farm Practices Committee of the New York Association of Milk and Food Sanitarians.. In 1970 a decision was made to transform the Committee into an independent organization of 11 states named the Northeast Dairy Practices Council (NDPC), led by Chairman Dick March; the first 3 Guidelines were published in 1972.. During the next 25 years the Council produced over 50 Guidelines and developed a sound reputation.. In 1994 another major decision was made and NDPC was transformed into a national organization named the Dairy Practices Council (DPC).. After 25 years as a northeast organization, the constitutional change in 1994 opened the Dairy Practices Council membership to all states.. An additional constitutional change in 2000 opened membership internationally.. The last 15 years have been years of growth and expansion.. Many changes have taken place, however, the original objectives of Quality and Uniformity through Education and Cooperation , with development and publication of Guidelines, have not changed.. Currently, the DPC library consists of over 100 Guidelines.. As a national and international organization, growth and expansion have necessitated the need to update, to reformat and to stay current with industry needs.. DPC has been able to make the transition mainly due to the fact that our current Executive Vice President and Executive  ...   of uniformity through cooperation has to begin with a dialogue between all groups involved.. DPC provides a place for such dialogue to take place.. The Task Force Directors are a key component of DPC since they carry a great deal of responsibility.. They prepare Task Force sessions, coordinate the writing of many Guidelines and are responsible for the systematic review of Guidelines to ensure each one is current.. Guideline topics often cover material which encompasses the work of more than one Task Force and requires a joint effort between Directors.. DPC sustaining members play a very important role in the success of the organization.. The Council sincerely appreciates their valued support over the years.. The reputation of DPC has always been one of a hardworking organization where members work in the spirit of cooperation to provide a large volume of educational information to the dairy industry.. When Donald George wrote the 25 year history in 1994, he included a statement which needs to be repeated in the 40 year history in 2009, Much appreciation is extended to the membership for their outstanding dedication to the Council s objectives.. DPC also owes sincere gratitude to the four Executive Vice Presidents who have led the Council over the 40 years: Dick March, Gil Porter, Don George and Terry Musson.. The First Twenty-Five Years.. NDPC Becomes DPC..

  • Title: Finances - Dairy Practices Council
    Descriptive info: Financial Information.. For the first nine years, revenue flowed only from individual membership dues and sales of guidelines.. Financial support from sustaining members and Cooperative Extension commenced in 1978.. The following year, state departments of agriculture and health initiated support.. Continuously since 1978, the Northeast Extension Directors, as a group, and on an annual basis, had approved proportionate financial support of NDPC.. The several states represented were: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and West Virginia.. Financial support from Cooperative Extension in the states of Kentucky, Ohio, and Virginia was on the basis of individual memberships in NDPC.. This continuous funding has been crucial to the ongoing vitality and  ...   change from NDPC to DPC.. After the Council became established as a national organization, a constitutional revision placed state extension systems in the category of education members with specific membership dues.. Currently ninety percent of the funds for this organization are produced by membership dues and by sustaining members, supporting Cooperative Extension at Land Grant Universities and supporting State Departments of Agriculture and Health.. The additional funds come through Guideline sales.. The membership is comprised of Sustaining Members, supporting Cooperative Extension at Land Grant Universities, supporting State Departments of Agriculture and Health and Individual Members.. This makes possible the automatic distribution of DPC Guidelines to many people who serve the Dairy Industry in the United States, Canada and worldwide..
