Montana Ag Groups Searching for New Executives

by Colter Brown

Two ag organizations in Montana are searching for new executives, the Montana Woolgrowers Association and the Montana Pulse Crop Committee.

The Montana Woolgrowers, the state’s oldest agricultural group, is looking for both a new Executive Secretary and a Manager for the Montana Ram Sale.

The Executive Secretary will work with the board of directors to keep the association on track. Duties include: membership communication, paying bills, general office duties, publishing the MWGA magazine, planning annual convention and much more.

The Montana Ram Sale Manager will oversee the planning of the Montana Ram Sale in Miles City! Work with consignor families, prepare data, sale catalog, arrange meals, sale week schedule, and more.

In a notification to members about the job opening, current Executive Secretary Leah Johnson wrote, “I have had the absolute pleasure of sitting at your kitchen tables, visiting your lambing sheds, and be invited to your shearings.  More than the actual work, I have valued the friendships and spirit of this association.  Your support and friendship will not be forgotten. I won’t be a stranger.  I still have my sheep and plan to continue being an active MWGA member moving forward.  Thank you!”
