A longtime volunteer leader with the Society of American Florists has been named to an influential committee that provides insight and advice to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Dr. Marvin Miller, AAF, of Ball Horticultural Company in West Chicago, Illinois, recently was named to the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) Advisory Committee on Agriculture Statistics. NASS conducts hundreds of surveys every year and prepares reports covering virtually every aspect of U.S. agriculture, including production and supply issues, prices paid and received by farmers, farm labor and wages, farm finances, chemical use, and changes in the demographics of U.S. producers.
“As a member and leader of SAF, Dr. Miller’s expertise and knowledge of the industry have been particularly valuable in interpreting statistics collected by federal agencies and in helping those agencies sharpen and focus their effort in collecting statistics for our industry,” wrote SAF Chief Operating Officer Drew Gruenburg in a letter nominating Miller for the post.
