The Pennsylvania Young Farmers Association selected Betsy Huber of Chester County as its executive secretary at the recent board meeting.
Huber is past president and current legislative liaison of the Pennsylvania State Grange. She served 21 years as a township supervisor in Upper Oxford Township and is active in many community and church activities.
She is the current president of the Pennsylvania State Council of Farm Organizations, secretary of the Pennsylvania FarmLink board and a Penn State University trustee. She also has served as chairman of the National Grange board of directors for the past five years.
“I am delighted to have the opportunity to assist PYFA in advancing its mission to educate and promote the agricultural industry,” Huber said. “We will focus on communication within PYFA and with other agricultural organizations because it is so important for all sectors of agriculture to work together.”
The association is open to any farmers. Frequent workshops are held at the county level as well as a winter and summer conference. For more information see www.payoungfarmers.com or email payoungfarmers<\@>hotmail.com.
