The National Lamb Feeders Association recently announced the hiring of Jodie Anderson as executive director.

Since graduating with a bachelor’s degree in agricultural business from Colorado State University, Anderson has had more than 20 years of association experience, including work for national, statewide and regional groups.

“Jodie comes to the lamb feeders with a wealth of association experience and we’re happy to have her on our team,” said NLFA President Bob Harlan of Kaycee, Wyo. “She and her staff are experienced agricultural association management professionals and are also well-versed in working with volunteers. We’re confident they will work effectively on behalf of our members.”

Anderson owns and operates Strategic Association Services and works with two staff members and a network of contractors to deliver services ranging from executive management to event planning, government relations and membership and communication services.

“I’m excited to join the efforts of the lamb feeders to reinvigorate their organization,” Anderson said. “As a fourth-generation livestock producer, I understand the value of speaking with a unified voice through our livestock organizations, and look forward to helping NLFA expand its influence on issues important to the livestock and feeding industries.”
