2012 Almond Achievement Award Goes to Joe MacIlvaine

Joe MacIlvaine, president of Paramount Farming Company, was honored for his lifetime of work on behalf of the California Almond industry at The Almond Conference Gala Dinner, held Dec. 13 in Sacramento. He was presented with the 2012 Almond Achievement Award by Bill Harp, chairman of the Board of Directors, and Richard Waycott, president and CEO of the Almond Board of California.

MacIlvaine has served the Almond Board for more than 20 years as a Board member and chair, and by serving on 10 committees and subcommittees, including Environmental Research, Finance, Production Research and others. He has also served as a mentor in the Almond Leadership Program, helping to introduce the younger generation to the California Almond industry and prepare participants for future leadership roles.

In addition to his direct involvement in our industry, MacIlvaine has served as a representative of California Almonds while acting as president of two water districts, the Bakersfield Symphony, the Bakersfield Rotary and the Southern Sierra Council of Boy Scouts. He has played a critical role in the advancement of the California Almond industry, exemplifies leadership and commitment to the industry, and works toward positive change and innovation.

The Almond Achievement Award is given annually to an industry member recognized for his or her contributions to the California Almond industry. MacIlvaine will have his name engraved on an almond-shaped leaf that will be affixed to a tree wall sculpture in the Nonpareil Conference Room at the Almond Board of California. The individual award presented to MacIlvaine was a framed and engraved photo of an orchard in bloom. Future recipients’ names will be added to the wall sculpture each year as well. Congratulations, Joe, and thank you for all of your years dedicated to this industry!
