The Alabama Farmers Federation promoted 14-year organization veteran Mitt Walker to assistant director of the Governmental and Agricultural Programs Department in December.
Walker will continue to lead the Federation’s national affairs efforts and the Catfish Division, in addition to managing agricultural programs. He will also help coordinate the policy development process and take the lead on international trade and the farm bill.
“I am so appreciative of the opportunity to continue working on behalf of our members in this new role and am thankful for the confidence the Federation’s leadership has placed in me,” said Walker, 44, a Troy University graduate.
Walker began his career with the Federation in June 2005 as a commodity director. In November 2011, he became national legislative programs director and resumed Catfish Division responsibilities in 2017.
He and wife Brandi have three children and live in Montgomery.
