Other officers announced by the board are: Vice-Chairwoman Cindy Belch, North Carolina; Secretary John Harrell, Georgia; and Treasurer Vic Jordan, Louisiana.

New board members also were sworn in by USDA-AMS Marketing Specialist Kimberly Coy. For New Mexico, Laura Robbins of Portales will serve as board member.
