Bill Roenigk, senior vice president of the National Chicken Council since 1974, will become a consultant to NCC starting in June 2013. In his message to the membership yesterday, NCC President Mike Brown said the arrangement will allow Roenigk to “remain an important part of the team and we will all still benefit from his wisdom and wit – just not nearly as often.”

Roenigk in his own message to NCC membership expressed his appreciation for the opportunity to work for the council and with an outstanding industry. He also expressed his appreciation to the council’s executive leadership for accepting his request to continue with NCC on a consultancy  basis. He added that he looks forward to helping NCC continue to achieve its mission.
