In her new position at AAMP, she will coordinate member information and communications and play a large role in convention administration.

“We are thrilled to welcome Niki to the AAMP team,” said Chris Young, executive director. “Niki’s knowledge of the meat industry along with her prior involvement with MAMP and AAMP will be an asset to us as we continue to grow our association.”
