The 71st Annual Meeting of the National Association of Farm Broadcasting wrapped up last week with a new slate of officers for 2015.
The president-elect is Brian Winnekins of Reel Country AM1430 in Wisconsin, whose job for the coming year will be to plan the next convention. The new NAFB president is Susan Littlefield of KZEN in Nebraska – pictured here to the right of Brian. Susan will soon start her new role representing the organization across the country and speaking at various farm industry meetings. To Brian’s left is our now immediate past president Janet Adkison, who will be able to relax a little more in the new year when not on the air with RFD-TV as their Washington DC reporter.
While at convention this past week, Cindy, intern Taylor, and I caught up with each of the officers to get their take on convention, what they have enjoyed and are looking forward to in their new roles and how being a part of the organization has affected their careers.
