After over 30 years with American Farm Bureau Federation, the name Mary Kay Thatcher has become well known in the agriculture world. But as of January 31, Thatcher retired from AFBF and is now looking forward to her next challenge doing federal relations for Syngenta.
Mary Kay has been a regular speaker at the Crop Insurance and Reinsurance Bureau (CIRB) annual meeting many years, but this was the first time she was technically unemployed when she presented her legislative outlook for the industry. Afterward, she was presented with a special award for her service by CIRB chair Ron Rutledge of Farmers Mutual Hail Insurance.
