Keith Menchey rejoins National Cotton Council

Dr. Keith Menchey will rejoin the National Cotton Council on May 1 in the organization’s Washington, DC, office where he will serve as manager, Science and Environmental Issues.

During his term, he helped develop state agricultural policies, emergency preparedness plans and energy policy.

Menchey has served as a Congressional Science Fellow with the U.S. House Agriculture Committee. He also has served as a Washington liaison for the American Society of Agronomy and most recently worked in the Biotechnology Regulatory Services at USDA’s Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service.

He is a graduate of Colorado State University where he majored in production agriculture. He completed graduate work at the University of Maryland College Park where he majored in plant genetics and breeding, earning his M.S. and Ph.D degrees in Agronomy.
