Idaho Woman Chairs the Cattlemen's Beef Board
Kim spent six years on the Idaho Beef Council working her way through leadership positions before serving on the Beef Board. Brackett shares her goals in her position.
Brackett: “The thing I really want to work — and this is something that I’ve been working on for the past two years as an officer also — is group building. I want to embrace the differences we have on our board because I think those differences make us a stronger board. I really value all of the board members’ input and their voice. I want to hear from all of them. We represent all of the stakeholders in this country; whether we agree on political issues or not. We have a lot of differences but the one thing that unites us is that we all care about the cattle industry. We care enough — my CBB board members care enough to be on the board, to be involved, to be engaged, to attend these meetings and make the decisions that make a strong checkoff program. I want to embrace that — that is what I want us to focus on is what we have in common, not so much our differences and try to move our board forward and make a stronger board for the future.”
