Delmarva Poultry Industry, Inc. Hires First Communications Manager

As part of its new comprehensive communications program, DPI has created a position of Communications Manager to coordinate and manage the organization's outreach efforts. Hired to lead the effort is veteran newspaper reporter and editor James Fisher of Milton, Delaware.

Mr. Fisher has made his home on Delmarva since 2003. He has worked as a newspaper reporter and editor for 13 years, covering all kinds of stories - including many stories on agriculture and the poultry industry - for The Daily Times of Salisbury, Maryland, and most recently for The News Journal in Delaware. Examples of his science reporting were recognized with an award in 2015 by the Maryland-Delaware-D.C. Press Association. In that line of work, he has seen up close how communication among agriculture, the public, government, and other industries has evolved.

Maryland Legislators Learn about the Chicken Industry

Members of the Maryland General Assembly's environmental committees spent today on the Eastern Shore visiting three farms, including a chicken farm in Queen Anne's County. Grower Jenny Rhodes hosted the group and for quite a few of the guests, it was their first time on a chicken farm, though they help set state policy for chicken industry issues.

Our thanks to the members for their interest in learning about our industry.
