Connie Tipton Reflects on 35-Year Career in Dairy

Jul 06, 2016
Connie Tipton, IDFA president and CEO, and Representative Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) at the Capitol Hill Ice Cream Party.

“I never dreamed I would spend 35 years with the dairy foods industry, let alone 12 of those years serving as the president and CEO of IDFA,” said Connie Tipton in the July 1 issue of Cheese Market News. “It’s been an honor, and I am proud of our many accomplishments together.”

In her column, Tipton recounts her rise through the associations’ ranks and highlights the trade shows and industry events, the farm bill skirmishes and the lasting impact IDFA has had on legislation and regulations over the years.
