Retired Astronaut to Keynote American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Meeting

Retired Astronaut to Keynote American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Meeting
Retired astronaut Mark Kelly will deliver the keynote address at the American Farm Bureau Federation’s 2013 Annual Meeting, Jan. 13-16, 2013, in Nashville, Tenn.


More than 5,000 Farm Bureau members from across the nation are expected to gather in Nashville for the 94th annual meeting to hear from distinguished leaders and participate in a grassroots policy-setting process that will guide AFBF through 2013.


Kelly is one of America’s most experienced pilots and has logged more than 6,000 flight hours aboard more than 50 different aircraft. His experience includes 375 aircraft carrier landings, 39 combat missions, more than 50 days in space and serving as commander of the Space Shuttle Endeavor’s final mission.


In addition to his experience as an astronaut and Navy captain, Kelly is a prostate cancer survivor and best-selling author. “Moustronaut: A Partially True Story,” is a children’s book written by Kelly that is slated for release in October.


“We are excited to have Mark Kelly as our keynote speaker,” said AFBF President Bob Stallman. “His outstanding leadership, dedication to teamwork and courage under pressure are truly inspirational.”


Kelly is married to Gabrielle Giffords, the former member of Congress who survived an assassination attempt in January 2011. Watch Kelly’s YouTube video about speaking to Farm Bureau members at .


Farm Bureau members register for the 94th AFBF annual meeting through state Farm Bureaus.
