Washington, DC - (AgPR) - American Agri-Women announces that Agri/Washington is providing executive staffing support for membership retention, communications, conference planning and development. American Agri-Women is the nation’s largest coalition of farm, ranch and agribusiness women with more than 50 state, commodity and agribusiness affiliate organizations.
Agri/Washington is a full-service public affairs firm with headquarters in Washington, D.C. The firm offers a unique combination of agricultural, communications, government relations, trade association and conference management expertise.
“We look forward to working with Agri/Washington, which is the premier agricultural public affairs firms in the country,” says Sue McCrum, American Agri-Women President. “Paul Weller, a well-known figure in the ag community, founded the firm with the intent of helping raise the profile of agricultural organizations. Andrea Ball, Agri/Washington’s Senior Director, has more than 15 years of experience of working with agricultural non-profits but also understands the unique needs of our members, as she was raised in rural Kansas. We feel it’s a perfect blend of continuing our grassroots efforts, yet bringing an additional level of organizational administration.”
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with American Agri-Women,” says Andrea Ball of Agri/Washington. “Our staff believes in the future of American agriculture and we are excited to collaborate with the AAW leadership to offer them administrative management and help them continue to raise awareness of issues impacting their members.”
