From the ACI Board of Directors: ACI President Amy Cornell to Step Down

With a mixture of sadness and gratitude, Agribusiness Council of Indiana’s board of directors announces that Amy Cornell, ACI president, will step away from her role at the end of August. Amy joined ACI as president in in 2017. 

“It has been an honor and inspiration to spend the last five years serving Indiana’s agribusinesses as president of ACI,” Cornell said. “My decision to step down is bittersweet – I’m excited to embark on a new challenge and new chapter of my career, but this organization is near and dear to my heart. When I look back, I’m so proud of all that we’ve accomplished: the successful merger of several organizations to form ACI as we know it today; bringing the 4R Certification program to Indiana; increasing our clout at the Statehouse and creating the Women IN Agribusiness program, which has helped hundreds of women develop their leadership skills. I’ll always be grateful for the personal relationships and friendships I’ve made during my time with this organization and for the members who made our work possible.”

Over the next few weeks, the ACI board of directors will form a search committee and create a process for identifying ACI’s next president. During this transition period, it is our priority to ensure that we maintain a stable and effective organization. We will share updates about our process as they become available. We hope that you will join us at our annual conference August 16 and 17 to celebrate ACI and some of the impacts Amy has had on our organization – don’t miss the opportunity to thank her for her hard work and wish her well in her new endeavors.


Kevin McGuire
Chair, ACI Board of Directors
