AFIA thanks these members, and their member companies, for their service, as many long-term projects are tackled annually due to their extra efforts.
Hundreds of members volunteer to serve on AFIA's committees every year, with terms concluding April 30. Committees oversee ongoing activities, interests and programs in specific disciplines and those that reflect all segments of the total feed industry. The committees' objectives are focused on the support of AFIA's core legislative and regulatory representation and/or various member services.
"Teamwork is what drives this association and that doesn't just include staff, but also committee members who come together to provide leadership and guidance within the feed industry," said AFIA President and CEO Joel G. Newman. "The feed industry needs one, solidified voice, and with the help of our committee members we achieve this goal."
