Alternates in the grower positions are Aaron Dahlstedt and Curt Dahlstedt. The handler alternate is Cole Jessup.

One handler and two grower positions are open in the south central region. Incumbent growers are Brett Calhoun, Wapato, and Ric Valicoff, Wapato; the alternates are Karen Doornick and Gayle Arnold. The handler position incumbent is Jill Douglas, Pasco. Joe Brandt is the alternate.

The committee sets standards for grading and packing apricots. Women, minorities and physically challenged people who qualify as grower or handlers are encouraged to participate.
