US - The National Pork Producers Council has promoted Chelsie Redalen to director of government relations in its Washington, D.C., public-policy office. Ms Redalen had been deputy director of government relations.

“Chelsie has been a tremendous asset to our policy team and to America’s pork producers,“ said Audrey Adamson, NPPC vice president of domestic policy issues and head of the D.C. office. “She has been a tireless advocate on Capitol Hill for the US pork industry, and this promotion is well-deserved.“

Ms Redalen will continue to work with Chris Wall, NPPC assistant vice president of government relations, as the organization’s top lobbyists. She will focus on competitive market and science and technology issues, including food safety, antibiotics and animal health matters.

Prior to joining NPPC as government relations associate in 2006, Ms Redalen was a consultant for the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association and worked on the staff of House Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin Peterson, D-Minn.

During her nearly four years with the organization, Redalen has helped build NPPC’s grassroots programs and grow its political action committee – PorkPAC – overseeing almost a doubling in contributions.

Ms Redalen, who grew up on a farm in Fountain, Minnesota, is a graduate of the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in applied economics.
