The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) has founded a new council for women executives involved in agriculture. The new group, aptly named Women in Ag Council, was created in response to several requests for such an organization. A preliminary meeting was held in conjunction with the Purchasing/Ingredient Suppliers Conference in Orlando in February. Those attending the charter meeting acted quickly in setting the foundation for the new group. By-laws are being drafted and plans developed to recruit potential members. Purposes of the Council include networking, mentoring and education as well as other issues.
