Alabama Agriculture and Industries Commissioner Ron Sparks was elected President of the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA) during their semi-annual meeting. Ron, who previously served as the President of the Southern Association of State Departments of Agriculture, had this to say:
I have been proud to represent Alabama’s agriculture industry in our national organization and it is certainly an honor to become president of NASDA. I hope that serving as president will help Alabama to continue to have a strong voice when it comes to protecting our farmers and consumers.
Several issues important to agriculture in Alabama were discussed at length during the conference. Some key issues include: rural development and financial security, the role of agriculture in climate change policy, and food regulation and nutrition. NASDA represents all of the 50 states in the United States and Puerto Rico. The majority of members are secretaries or commissioners of state departments of agriculture. This is quite an honor for Ron and it will give him the opportunity to do some good work on issues important to all U.S. citizens.
