Long time California Poultry Federation board member Jack Engle will retire effective Feb. 1, and his leadership and dedication to the poultry and egg industry will be honored during a reception in Modesto (see attached flyer) on Feb. 7. Another board member, Bob Shipley, will also be honored in retirement. (See the Shipley story in our
January 3 Update).
Engle served on the CPF board for almost 20 years, earning the coveted Allied Member of the Year Award in 2000, the second person to ever receive the honor. He was instrumental in bringing new allied members into the organization as well as promoting membership with poultry and egg farmers. His dynamic leadership has made our organization thrive particularly at times when industry challenges required dedication and determination. His love for his work and the people he served was always at the forefront, which is one of the many reasons why he was a beloved allied member.
Without reservation, the CPF board of directors will miss this man, who has meant so much to all of us, and to the success of poultry and egg people in the West. Congratulations Jack on a well deserved retirement, and we wish you well in all your future endeavors.
