As a membership-driven organization, the American Feed Industry Association depends heavily on the dedication, commitment and involvement of its members to ensure the vitality and success of the association’s mission, objectives and programs. Members can get involved in the organization either by volunteering to serve on AFIA committees or by participating in member interest groups, or MIGs.
The AFIA has 14 committees that 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. Members are nominated for election each May, at the beginning of the AFIA’s fiscal year, to serve three-year terms. Visit the committee page to learn more about the committees or to express interest in joining a committee.

The AFIA has 20 member interest groups that represent specific areas of interest and expertise across the AFIA membership. They are designed to provide members with an opportunity to share information with their colleagues throughout the industry and provide input and data that assists AFIA staff in developing issue positions, comments to government requests or other member services. MIGs do not require regular meetings or appointments and anyone can join. Visit the member interest group page to learn more or to sign-up.
