Joel Brandenberger, the president of the National Turkey Federation, is working to keep family and friends in the mix.

My three goals for 2017
1. Ensure that we are helping the industry as it completes its recovery from last year’s avian influenza outbreak.
2. Help strengthen the association’s governance procedures.
3. Make sure that family, friends, and home life remain the top priorities.
On my desk right now
A briefing book for our executive committee, a draft 2017 budget, and too much other paper
My media mix
Music: A lot of classic rock, but a host of other music ranging from classical to Texas country to contemporary Christian
Publications: The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, and The Economist
The best advice I ever got
Prepare well, have faith, demand accountability for yourself and others, and understand you can’t control every outcome.
What I do when I’m not at work
Watch sports, read, walk, write
