The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) and Institute for Feed Education and Research (IFEEDER) appointed Emily Anne Igli as the new development and operations specialist. Igli will provide tactical support for Constance Cullman, AFIA’s president and CEO, and Lara Moody, IFEEDER’s executive director, as well as facilitate Board operations and donor stewardship. She will also support the IFEEDER Board of Trustees and deliver reports on fundraising efforts and results while working closely with the IFEEDER executive director to establish and implement the overall strategic direction for the public charity. Additionally, she will work closely with the AFIA communications team, developing strategies for a development presence in all communications and marketing.
“Emily’s past experience in agricultural government relations and interest in sustainability makes her an excellent asset to the AFIA team,” said Cullman. “I’m thrilled to welcome her and I look forward to seeing the new perspective and expertise she will bring to our association and industry research arm.”
Bringing a wealth of experience from the interpersonal facets of various business organizations, Igli values the importance of quality communication while fostering creativity and tangible sustainability in the workplace. Prior to joining the AFIA and IFEEDER, Igli learned the ins and outs of corporate agriculture as she completed a professional clerkship with Tyson Foods in their legal and federal government relations department.
