The National Association of State Departments of Agriculture recently announced RJ Karney as its Senior Director of Public Policy.
Karney comes from the American Farm Bureau Federation, most recently serving as a Congressional Relations Director.
Karney will serve as the strategic leader of NASDA’s public policy team during what the organization calls a period of significant growth and change for NASDA, the U.S. government, and American agriculture.
NASDA CEO Dr. Barb Glenn says, “RJ’s highly reputable talent and experience in government relations will bring needed leadership to NASDA as we tackle our new strategic plan.”
Karney says, “NASDA will be at the table for farmers and ranchers as we create relationships with a new Administration and new Congress.”
Karney holds a Master of Public Policy from George Mason University and a bachelor’s degree in history from the Catholic University of America.
NASDA is a nonpartisan, nonprofit association representing the elected and appointed commissioners, secretaries, and directors of the departments of agriculture in all fifty states and four U.S. territories.
