Allison Hines, a native of Columbus, Ind. joined Indiana Farm Bureau in January as the regional manager for the western portion of District 10, covering Jackson, Scott, Harrison, Washington, Floyd and Clark counties.
Hines is a graduate of Butler University, where she majored in political science and public relations and comes to Indiana Farm Bureau following seven years in Washington, D.C, working as a staff member in the House of Representatives for a Colorado congressman, Mike Pence and, most recently, a house caucus.
In her new position, Hines will serve as a liaison between the Indianapolis office and the county offices and membership boards. She will help the counties in her district achieve their local and statewide goals – everything from policy development to member recruitment and educational goals.
Hines is excited to settle in to her new career at Indiana Farm Bureau, which has allowed her to move back to Indiana, where she looks forward to learning how to garden this summer. She also enjoys baking. Her parents, Dwayne and Tami Hines, serve on the board of directors for Bartholomew County.
“I’ve only been here 14 days, so far,” she said, “but the warmth and hospitality I’ve received make it clear that IFB is an organization that represents Hoosier values. I’m honored to be a part of that legacy.”
