ICA Board of Directors selects new leadership at annual meeting
A Garner, Iowa cattle producer will be the new president of the Iowa Cattlemen's Association. Ed Greiman, who is involved with both a feedyard and cow-calf operation, became ICA president at the end of the ICA Annual Meeting, Dec. 12. He has served on the ICA board since December 2009. Greiman replaces Ross Havens, Wiota, whose term had expired.
During the ICA Convention, which was held in Altoona, the ICA Board of Directors elected Phil Reemtsma, DVM, of DeWitt as president-elect. He has been a member of the board of directors since December 2006. Reemtsma feeds cattle and is a large animal veterinarian. He previously was the Southeast Iowa regional vice president.
Newly elected to the position of associate vice president is Brent Henningsen of Ames. He is senior territory manager for Pfizer Animal Health. He replaces Mike Sexton, Rockwell City.
Other members of ICA's Executive Committee are Al Johnson, Northwood, northwest regional vice president, re-elected this fall by his region; Larry Johnson, Maquoketa, northeast regional vice president; and David Trowbridge, Tabor, elected this fall as southwest regional vice president to replace Scott Hansen, Adel, who stepped down after serving his second term.
The positions of president, president-elect, and associate vice president are all one-year terms. Those serving in the positions can serve a maximum of two terms. Regional vice presidents serve two-year terms, and may serve a maximum of three terms.
The ICA Executive Committee will appoint a replacement for Reemtsma, who will serve until an election is held at the Southeast Regional meeting in the summer of 2013.
