She is a member and former chair of Michigan Farm Bureau’s Promotion & Education Committee and previously served on the state board of directors, and currently volunteers as a 4-H leader.

McCauley is passionate about sharing the story of farming, particularly through the lens of a camera. She also enjoys teaching others about advocating for agriculture through video marketing.

AFBF’s P&E Committee fills an important role in bridging the gap between farmers and consumers by providing tools and resources to other Farm Bureau members who are eager to help share agriculture’s story.
