The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) has founded a new council for women executives involved in agriculture. The new group, aptly named, Women in Ag Council, was created in response to several requests for such an organization. A preliminary meeting was held in conjunction with last month’s Purchasing/Ingredient Suppliers Conference in Orlando.
Those attending the charter meeting acted quickly in setting the foundation for the new group. By-laws are being drafted and plans developed to recruit potential members. Purposes of the Council include networking, mentoring, and education as well as other issues.
If you are interested in becoming part of the Council or know of anyone who might be interested, please contact Betty Pendleton by e-mail at Bpendle@aol.com or at +1-251-342-2028. The Council is open to all ag women.
