Yankee CEO, Brenda Frank reflected on this year's meetings and the coming year.
"It was a tremendous support being able to talk with members over the week. Our team is dedicated to staying focused on the industries we serve while managing the many challenges of the coming year. The rising interest rate environment offers challenges for everyone at Yankee Farm Credit, but we stay committed to returning any additional profit to our members."

"The board of directors is pleased to have such broad support and participation in the Association's annual meetings. The election process is so important to running this organization and we are pleased to welcome Craig and David to the board.
We appreciate your patience as Yankee's staff completes the conversion to new support programs. They offer new efficiencies and services, but also learning challenges and change for all of us. Make sure you look to the staff for any help you need with any of this or other lending issues.
