Keeping PCCA members informed is one of many priorities for the cooperative’s staff, and one communications tool is Cotton Market Weekly. This free service is written and distributed each week, as the name implies, and contains information about cotton futures, U.S. and world supply and demand estimates, crop conditions, and more.
Cotton Market Weekly (CMW) was developed more than 25 years ago by PCCA’s Communications Department and originally was mailed only to weekly newspapers to help fill space and keep their readers informed. New technology in recent years made it possible to offer CMW to anyone interested in staying up-to-date on current market conditions and factors affecting cotton prices by receiving the newsletter via email.
CMW is co-written by John Johnson, PCCA’s Directorof Public Relations and Legislative Affairs, and Chris Kramedjian, PCCA’s Director of Risk Management. They monitor and report on weekly and monthly reports from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, and others. CMW is written and emailed each Friday unless a holiday requires the newsletter to be sent on Thursday.
