The Maryland Dairy Industry Association held an organizational meeting Dec. 13 in Frederick County to elect officers, approve bylaws and appoint committees on an interim basis.
Myron L. Wilhide of Keysville, a Carroll County dairy farmer and Farm Bureau leader, was named interim president by acclamation. Janet Shank Stiles was chosen interim vice president.
Laura Kaminsky of Wentz, northeast Carroll County, was elected interim secretary-treasurer. She also is a field representative for the Maryland Farm Bureau, which will temporarily house the group's offices in Randallstown.
It was agreed that all 24 people attending the meeting would serve as an interim board of directors.
One of the group's priorities will be getting sponsors for a proposed Fairness in Milk Marketing Act to be introduced into the 1997 Maryland General Assembly.
Dues will be $40 annually, with all paid members having a vote.
The next board meeting will be at 10: 30 a.m. Jan. 21 at the Frederick County Extension Office.
