Amoss takes post at Md. Farm Bureau

June 26, 2012

The Maryland Farm Bureau has announced the hiring of Michael Amoss as a regional director in field services, covering Howard, Montgomery, Anne Arundel, Prince George’s, Calvert, Charles and St. Mary’s counties. 

Amoss grew up on a family farm in Harford County, Md., and recently graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park, with a bachelor’s degree in agricultural economics.

His farm bureau roots run deep as he has been involved in the Maryland Farm Bureau Young Farmer program, worked at the Maryland State Fair as a U-Learn Farm coordinator and a Dairy Bar manager, and interned with Maryland Farm Bureau assisting in the government relations and field services areas.

“I am very excited to get started in the new position and be part of such a great organization,” Amoss said. “Through my involvement in Maryland Farm Bureau, I have been fortunate enough to meet many great people within Maryland's agricultural community. I look forward to working with them, along with many more.”

In this reorganization, Amoss joins two regional directors, Laura Ruhlman and David Willoughby. Ruhlman will cover the northern tier of counties including Garrett, Allegany, Washington, Frederick, Carroll, Baltimore, Harford and Cecil. Willoughby will continue to assist the Eastern Shore counties of Kent, Queen Anne’s, Caroline, Talbot, Dorchester, Wicomico, Worcester and Somerset. 

“Maryland Farm Bureau is pleased to have an outstanding young man with a farm background on board,” said Maryland Farm Bureau President Patricia Langenfelder. “Mike will increase our ability to serve the county farm bureau members. Adding a third person to our outstanding field services team will be of great assistance in our geographically spread state.”

Amoss will officially begin his duties July 2.
