As we inch closer to 2014, Illinois Farm
Bureau (IFB) says hello to new leaders and new ideas, and bids
farewell to others who have helped make IFB the top farming
organization that it is today.
The Illinois Farm Bureau annual meeting came to a close at the
Palmer House in Chicago yesterday, but not without several standing
ovations for President Philip Nelson, who conducted his final
annual meeting. The meeting's theme, "Working Together, Building
Tomorrow," helped summarize what Nelson has done for IFB and
agriculture throughout his tenure.
The president's parting words showed just how much the ten year
reign has meant to him, while the rousing applause of the crowd
showed just how much he has meant to members and farming.
Richard Guebert Jr. of Ellis Grove was elected the new President
of Illinois Farm Bureau. Guebert has served as the vice
president since December 2003. Prior to that, he served
as president of the Randolph County Farm Bureau.
David Erickson, of Knox County, was elected as the new Vice
President of IFB.
Also yesterday, delegates elected three new directors, they
Gary Speckhart, Adams County
Dennis Hughes, Macon County
Larry Miller, Franklin County
New IFB President, Rich Guebert
and new IFB Vice President, David Erickson
