Arlington, VA - The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) depends heavily on the dedication and involvement of members who volunteer annually to serve on committees. These committees further the success of the association's mission, objectives and programs and the AFIA thanks these volunteer members and the companies they represent for their service.
Most of the committee terms run from May 1-April 30 each year and volunteers serve a term of three years. Each of AFIA's 14 committees are focused on supporting the AFIA's core legislative and regulatory objectives and/or member services. The committees oversee the AFIA's ongoing activities, interests and programs in very specific disciplines and reflect all segments of the total feed industry.
"Our committee structure keeps us connected to our members, allowing us to work side by side on issues that affect the whole industry," said AFIA President and CEO Constance Cullman. "It's incredibly important for the feed industry to advocate with one, unified voice - and we can do just that thanks to our committee members. We appreciate the commitment of time, expertise and resources by all who have served on AFIA committees."
The AFIA thanks the following 2021 outgoing committee members.
