AFR members elect officers at 2016 convention

American Farmers & Ranchers held officer and director elections at the 111th AFR Convention Feb. 19-21, Norman, Okla. The organization’s membership delegates re-elected Terry Detrick, Ames, Okla., to lead the organization as president.

“I am honored and humbled by the members’ trust in my ability to continue leading this great organization,” Detrick said. “I look forward to working with the members and agents for the continued success of this company and its future.”

The membership voted on two other seats on the AFR Board of Directors—Northeast District Seat #3 and at-large District #3.

Mike Humble, Cache, Okla., will retain the at-large District 3 seat for another three-year term.  Marion Schauffler, Porter, Okla., was elected to his first term on the board.

In addition to the elections, the three-day event featured educational speakers and entertainment, and the annual business meeting where AFR legislative policies were adopted.

This year’s convention theme was “Insuring Rural Tomorrows.”

“This year’s convention theme represents who we are as a company and as an organization,” said AFR President Terry Detrick. “Our vibrant and accomplished history stands as our foundation for our current and future growth, both as an insurance company and as a farm organization that serves the state of Oklahoma.”
