Dana Peterson, a Kansas native and long-time policy staffer at Kansas Wheat, took the helm at NAWG as the Associations’ chief executive officer on Wednesday.

Peterson was hired just a few weeks ago, and comes to the organization days before NAWG’s annual winter meetings and a month before NAWG’s annual meeting at Commodity Classic.

In an audio interview now available online at, she discusses her view of top policy priorities facing agriculture; changes she sees for the organization and how it interacts with state associations; and the deep wheat background that led her to the nation’s capital.
