ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA, US — Stephanie See has joined the National Grain and Feed Association as vice president of legislative and public affairs.

See has 18 years of lobbying experience.

“Stephanie will be a great addition to our team, and I look forward to NGFA members getting to know and work with her,” said Mike Seyfert, president and chief executive officer of the NGFA. “She brings vast experience working in trade associations and lobbying at the federal and state levels. Her experience in agriculture, distribution and logistics, labor, tax, infrastructure and business issues will bring a well-rounded and positive approach to NGFA advocacy and public policy.”

As the senior director of state affairs at the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, See managed the strategic direction and oversight of AEM’s state government relations program.
