The National Association of County Agricultural Agents elected Cynthia Gregg, Virginia Cooperative Extension agricultural and natural resources agent, to the position of vice president at its national meeting, held in Pittsburgh in September 2013. Gregg is only the second woman to hold a national office for the association and the second person from Virginia in 98 years.

Gregg has served as the ANR agent for Brunswick County since 1997.

“The association could not have elected a more dedicated Extension professional to help lead its organization,” said Ed Jones, director of Virginia Cooperative Extension. “We are proud to have one of our own agents to serve in this role.”

NACAA is an organization of professional Extension educators that strives to further the professional development of its members, provides a forum to exchange ideas and foster communication, and recognizes excellence in Extension nationwide.

“I am truly honored to be representing Virginia on the National Association of County Agricultural Agents board,” Gregg said. “All of the support from Virginia agents during the campaign is humbling. I am looking forward to the upcoming year and learning more about NACAA through this leadership role.”
