Meet the 5 new FFVA board members
from the Emerging Leader Development Program

Five graduates from FFVA’s Emerging Leader Development Program took their seats for the first time this month as members of the FFVA Board of Directors. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the May 22 meeting was held via Zoom instead of in person.

The new board members are Josh Griffin, Dustin Grooms, Elizabeth Malek, Justin Pettit and Derek Orsenigo.

In February, the board unanimously approved the new members’ appointments to two-year terms. The addition comes after changes were made to FFVA’s bylaws in September 2019 that added five at-large board seats designated for ELDP producer-member graduates.

The change brings the total board membership to 45.
