Salm will be responsible for working with county Farm Bureaus to develop and implement programs to serve Farm Bureau members and to coordinate membership recruitment and retention efforts.
“I am thrilled to be part of the Farm Bureau staff and thankful for this opportunity to work with those so passionate about all facets of agriculture,” Salm said.
Salm will serve Farm Bureau’s District 6, which includes Brown, Calumet, Door, Kewaunee, Manitowoc and Sheboygan counties. Salm began her duties on December 19.
“Becky’s combination of experience working with membership-based organizations, Farm Bureau involvement, and farm background will serve her well as she works with the county Farm Bureaus in east-central Wisconsin,” said Bob Leege, Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s Executive Director of Member Relations.
Salm and her husband, Brian, have three children. They have a dairy and crop farm near Newton in Manitowoc County.
A graduate of UW-Stevens Point, Salm has worked for several membership-based organizations including The Chamber of Manitowoc County in Manitowoc, and the YMCA at Pabst Farms in Oconomowoc.
As a Manitowoc County Farm Bureau member, Salm has participated in Farm Bureau’s Young Farmer and Agriculturist Discussion Meet. As president of the Manitowoc County Dairy Promotion Committee she has planned the county’s Breakfast on the Farm event in partnership with the Manitowoc County Farm Bureau.
