INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana Farm Bureau recently promoted two staff members to new roles.

Megan Ritter, former public policy director, was named executive director of administration. In this newly created position, Ritter will direct the development and implementation of INFB’s strategic plan. Additionally, she will direct staff development and support organizational relationships with external audiences.

“I am eager to serve Indiana's largest Farm organization in this new capacity,” said Ritter. “I look forward to working with staff and members to serve farmers and Indiana agriculture as a whole. Agriculture is constantly changing and innovating, and INFB will be ready to work with the ever-changing farm economy and the needs of farm families.”

Katrina Hall was promoted to public policy director from director of state government relations. Hall brings decades of Statehouse lobbying experience to her new role as public policy director. She will oversee all of INFB’s public policy and advocacy efforts at the local, state and federal level.

“It is an honor and a privilege for me to lead Indiana Farm Bureau’s public policy team,” said Hall. “I look forward to this new challenge. It provides an even greater avenue for me to work with our members to promote policies that grow opportunities in agriculture and that elevate the discussion about rural economies and rural quality of life.”

The promotions will take effect June 13.

Indiana Farm Bureau has also hired Shelby Swain to serve as an associate policy analyst. Swain will work primarily on state policy issues.
