(Indianapolis) – Jan. 18, 2024 – Indiana Farm Bureau welcomed three new district leaders into state leadership roles this year: a new district director who joins the INFB board of directors and two new district education and outreach coordinators who join the INFB Women’s Leadership Committee.
The newest member of the INFB board of directors is Mark Seib of Posey County. Seib now serves as director for District 9, which includes Crawford, Dubois, Gibson, Orange, Perry, Pike, Posey, Spencer, Vanderburgh and Warrick counties. Seib replaces Marybeth Feutz, whose term ended in December.
Seib and his wife, Sheryl, have been active members of Posey County Farm Bureau for over 35 years, with Mark serving as president from 1992 to 1998 and again from 2018 to 2023.
On the state level, Seib served as chairman of the Field Crops Advisory Committee and was a member of the PAC Oversight Committee. On the national level, he served as the chairman of the American Farm Bureau Feed Grain Committee and as the AFBF alternate director on the U.S. Grain Council.
He is active in his local community, serving as president of the Posey County Area Plan Commission and a board member on the Posey County Board of Zoning Appeals. He also sits on the Purdue Council for Agricultural Research, Extension and Teaching Committee. Additionally, Seib is past president of the Indiana Soybean Alliance and served on the United Soybean Board from 2012 to 2022. Past service also includes time as a volunteer firefighter and as a member of the Posey County Sheriff’s Merit Board.
Seib farms corn and soybeans in Poseyville, Indiana, with his brother and nephews.
The INFB Women’s Leadership Committee also welcomed two new district education and outreach coordinators. The job of the WLC is educating the public through programs and events that promote a positive image of agriculture.
Now representing District 1 is Kayla Meyers of LaPorte County. In her new role, Meyers represents Fulton, Lake, LaPorte, Marshall, Porter, Pulaski, St. Joseph and Starke counties. Meyers replaces Jan Bohling, whose term ended in December.
Prior to her district position, Meyers served as the LaPorte County Farm Bureau treasurer and, most recently, the county education and outreach coordinator from 2017 to 2023.
Meyers and her husband, Ron, farm in Westville, Indiana, with their two sons where they raise corn, seed corn and soybeans.
Meyers has served as vice president and president of her local Tri-Kappa chapter, as well as chaired the milk cabin event at the LaPorte County Fair. She is involved in her church, organizing summer Bible schools and serving on missions boards. Meyers also has driven a local school bus for 20 years and helps on the farm.
Tracy Morgan of Vermillion County is the District 5 education and outreach coordinator. She represents members in Boone, Fountain, Hendricks, Montgomery, Morgan, Parke, Putnam, Vermillion and Warren counties. Morgan replaces Margaret Gladden, who retired in December.
Morgan served as the county education and outreach coordinator for Vermillion County Farm Bureau from 2017 to 2023, and she sat on the public relations and scholarship committees. Morgan also was part of the INFB L.E.A.D program in 2022, which stands for leadership, education, action and development.
Morgan and her husband, Brian, raise corn and soybeans in Cayuga, Indiana, with their sons.
Morgan is a licensed practical nurse and has a cosmetology license. She also is a photographer, specifically capturing 4-H livestock shows, where she has served as a photography judge at the county and state level.
Seib, Meyers and Morgan officially took office at the close of INFB’s State Convention in December 2023, along with Janis Highley of Huntington County, who, as previously announced, was elected as INFB’s 2nd vice president.
