“We have seen many changes in the past five years but many things have stayed the same, such as the struggles many agricultural associations are facing to remain viable. NLPA has strong leadership through its board and a dedicated staff who ensure our organization can face the challenge,” Hanson said. “Paramount to my approach as Chairman is to work with the board and staff to protect the integrity of our organization,” Hanson said. “NLPA is steeped in history and tradition and we continue to provide meaningful representation to our members and our industry.”
