New NYFC Co-Executive Directors (Fri, 20 Sep 2019)
Beginning Farmers Beginning Farmers - Practical Tools for Successful Family Farming NYFC Sophie Ackoff and Martin Lemos named Co-Executive Directors of the National Young Farmers' Coalition (NYFC) All farmers know that renewal is critical to building strength and resilience. The NYFC is energized by new ideas and challenges, and built on the core belief that young people in agriculture hold the key to its successful future. They are guided by their farmer leaders across the country: experienced, ambitious young people who know what the next generation needs.   In that spirit of growth and progress, it is with great excitement that the NYFC Board of Directors announces that they have selected two proven leaders from within their coalition to serve as Co-Executive Directors: Sophie Ackoff and Martin Lemos. Together, Sophie and Martin will lead the National Young Farmers Coalition, working with all of you to build a brighter future for U.S. agriculture.  Sophie has been with the Coalition almost since its inception and is largely responsible for the strength of its grassroots network, advocacy campaigns, as well as the success of NYFC's corporate partnerships. Martin has also served an invaluable leadership role since he came on board in 2018 and throughout his interim directorship. He has been instrumental in building and strengthening many aspects of the organization in this short time. His pragmatism is balanced with an expansive and progressive vision.

NYFC would also like to acknowledge the tremendous leadership of its founding executive director Lindsey Lusher Shute over the past decade. It is truly humbling to consider the breadth of the movement building, policy work, storytelling, and consciousness raising about the future of agriculture that Lindsey has led.  Learn more about the important work of the National Young Farmers Coalition at https://www.youngfarmers.org/.   Get more information about Farm Policy and Agricultural Politics at https://www.beginningfarmers.org/farm-policy-agricultural-politics/ Find many other useful farming resources at https://www.beginningfarmers.org/additional-farming-resources/ New NYFC Co-Executive Directors Taylor
