In this issue, we give a shout out to Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation’s Membership Clerk, Cindy Lavender.
Cindy began working for Mississippi Farm Bureau Casualty Insurance Company in May 1994 before moving to her current position with MFBF in December 1995. On a typical day, Cindy works with county secretaries across the state regarding membership tracking software. In addition, she conducts membership training classes for new membership secretaries.
“I reconcile and process daily membership dues and reports, as well as assist the state office with other accounting needs,” Cindy says.
Cindy says she likes being able to develop relationships with the membership secretaries across the state.
“I’ve developed close relationships with many of the membership secretaries over the years, and I enjoy helping them on a daily basis,” Cindy says. “It allows me to work with others who love Farm Bureau and what our organization stands for.”
Cindy places much value on spending time with her family. She has been married to her high school sweetheart, Lane, for 32 years. Together, the couple has three children, Casey, Ryan and Summer, and one grandson, Beck.
