Dale Nellor Rejoins AMI As Director of Legislative Affairs

Tuesday, April 1, 2008

The American Meat Institute today announced that Capitol Hill veteran Dale Nellor has re-joined AMI as director of legislative affairs.

In his position, Nellor will report to AMI Senior Vice President of Legislative of Affairs Mike Brown.

Nellor left AMI last fall after two years as a member of AMI’s legislative team to serve as the political/policy director for former Agricultural Secretary Mike Johanns’ U.S. Senate campaign in Nebraska.

Previously, Nellor worked for more than two years as a legislative assistant to U.S. Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE). His responsibilities as a principle advisor to Sen. Hagel focused on all agricultural issues, energy, rural development, natural resources and related appropriations policy. Nellor has additional agricultural policy advocacy experience having served as a policy consultant for the Nebraska Farm Bureau Federation. Prior to that, Nellor served as a campaign manager and as an agricultural policy consultant for several campaigns for seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Originally, from a row crop and livestock farm in northeastern Nebraska, he received his B.S. in business management from Concordia University in Wisconsin.

“Dale’s legislative and agricultural policy experience has been a great asset to our legislative team,” said AMI President J. Patrick Boyle. “We are pleased to have him back and picking up right where he left off.”
