USFRA Names 2015 Executive Committee
The U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance (USFRA®), an organization dedicated to leading the national consumer dialogue about how America's food is grown and raised, announced Monday its new 2015 Executive Committee members. Nancy Kavazanjian, farmer director of the United Soybean Board, was named as Board chairperson. During her tenure Kavazanjian will work closely with the CEO of USFRA and members of the Board in providing thought leadership and serve as a national consumer spokesperson on behalf of farmers and ranchers across the nation.


"I am truly honored to have been selected to play such an important role in the consumer dialogue about how our food is produced and reaches our tables," said Kavazanjian. "As a farmer, I am passionate about sustainably growing safe and nutritious food for America and have seen first-hand the need for an organization like USFRA to help set the record straight for consumers about how our food is actually produced. I look forward to serving as USFRA's Board Chairperson."


Other 2015 Executive Committee members include:


-- Vice Chair Brad Greenway, National Pork Board

-- Secretary - Mike Geske, National Corn Growers Association

-- Treasurer - Dawn Caldwell, Federation of State Beef Councils

-- At-Large - Lisa Lunz, Nebraska Soybean Board

-- At-Large - Todd Frazier, DuPont Pioneer


Outgoing Board Chairperson Bob Stallman and president of American Farm Bureau Federation has served in the role since the organization's inception in 2010.


"I am pleased to pass the gavel to Nancy," said Stallman. "I have enjoyed serving in this role and watching the growing positive impact USFRA has had with consumers. I am proud of the work our organization has been able to accomplish thus far and am confident under Nancy's leadership that USFRA will continue to play an ever increasing role in enhancing consumers' confidence in agriculture."
