Angotti-Baum hired as WFBF District 7 coordinator

Danielle Angotti-Baum has been hired by the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation as the district coordinator in northeastern Wisconsin.

Angotti-Baum will be responsible for working with county farm bureaus to develop and implement programs to serve Farm Bureau members and to coordinate membership recruitment and retention efforts.

“I am looking forward to building relationships with the Farm Bureau members in northeast Wisconsin,” said Angotti-Baum. “There is a legacy of strong programming and membership recruitment efforts in District 7. I look forward to building off that legacy to continue to develop opportunities to help District 7 members continue to thrive.”

Angotti-Baum will serve Farm Bureau’s District 7, which includes the counties of Langlade, Marinette, Oconto, Outagamie, Shawano and Waupaca. She will begin her duties Jan. 22.

“Danielle has deep roots in agricultural education, making her well-suited for the District 7 coordinator position. We are excited for her to join our talented field staff in serving members in northeast Wisconsin,” said WFBF Executive Director of Member Relations Bob Leege.

Angotti-Baum grew up on a farm near Freedom in Outagamie County. She is a graduate of UW-River Falls with a degree in agricultural education and a master’s degree in education, school supervision and instructional leadership.

Prior to graduation, Angotti-Baum served as state vice president for Wisconsin FFA and was a member of the UW-River Falls Collegiate Farm Bureau. Since graduation, she has been employed as an agriscience teacher and FFA adviser at Clintonville High School.

Angotti-Baum will assume the duties of District 7 coordinator from Wes Raddatz, who is retiring at the end of the year after 27 years of service to Wisconsin Farm Bureau.

The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation is the state’s largest general farm organization, representing farms of every size, commodity and management style.
