Board of Directors

about

The Foundation’s Board of Directors is a strong and supportive group of agricultural literacy stakeholders that regularly reflects on our mission to build awareness, understanding and a positive public perception of agriculture through education.

“Securing Our Future” has been the ongoing theme of the foundation, and it aptly describes our role in the industry. This means that we need to build partnerships with donors in the agricultural community to support the projects of the Foundation. Our board of directors provides the leadership for determining our goals for the year.

We are continuing to accomplish our mission of building awareness, understanding and a positive public perception of agriculture through education. Our board includes a mix of Farm Bureau leaders and ag industry leaders all of whom will unite to help the Foundation set and achieve its goals.
