Association Welcomes New Membership Director

The Farm Equipment Manufacturers Association is pleased to welcome Cathy Peirick as the Member Services Director. In this role, she will be responsible for developing and executing member recruitment and retention strategies that align with the association’s strategic objectives.

Cathy brings a wealth of experience from her previous roles with various associations and member-based organizations in the St. Louis metro area.
