The Alabama Farmers Federation held leadership elections during annual meeting Monday.
The elections, which were held during the business session of the meeting, attracted nearly 500 voters from all of Alabama’s sixty-seven counties. Votes determined who would be selected to take over or continue their role as officers and directors.
Officers and directors serve on the Alfa Insurance Board of Directors with directors severing three year terms and officers serving two year terms.
During the election, Jake Harper of Wilcox County was reelected as Southwest Area vice president.
This marks Harper’s tenth term as Southwest vice president. The Southwest area Harper serves canvasses Baldwin, Butler, Choctaw, Clarke, Conecuh, Dallas, Escambia, Hale, Lowndes, Marengo, Mobile, Monroe, Montgomery, Perry, Sumter, Washington and Wilcox counties.
The mission of the farmers’ federation is to “protect and improve the ability of farmers engaged in production agriculture to provide a reliable supply of food through responsible stewardship of Alabama’s resources.”
