With eyes trained on bettering service to members across the industry and further expanding that reach, the International Dairy Deli Bakery Association (IDDBA) welcomed a new Membership Director in Kristan (Kris) Neilson.

Kristan (Kris) Neilson, Membership Director, International Dairy Deli Bakery Association“It is really exciting to join the IDDBA team at such a pivotal time. I look forward to working with our 1,200-strong member community of retailers, manufacturers, and solution-oriented entities that work daily to serve those in our key focus areas of dairy, deli, bakery, and foodservice,” said Neilson commented.

Prior to her joining the IDDBA, Neilson most recently served the Wisconsin Grocers Association (WGA) where she held the Vice-President of Events role. Additionally, her background includes roles for Wisconsin Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (WAICU) and the insurance, hospitality, and sales industries, according to a press release.

David Haaf, President and Chief Executive Officer, International Dairy Deli Bakery Association“2024 kicks off IDDBA’s 60th anniversary. Welcoming Kris to the IDDBA team is the perfect way to start the celebration,” David Haaf, the association’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said.

In addition to Neilson’s vast array of retail and association management experience, Haaf noted that her work in member relations and consumer science will allow the association to better serve current members and naturally grow both member base and value.

Neilson said she is currently immersing herself in all things IDDBA—anticipating IDDBA 2024 in Houston, June 9–11, meeting existing and potential members, and reflecting that sharing the benefits of the association’s educational product portfolio is top priority.
