After resigning as Secretary of State, Beth Chapman will take the helm as political consultant for Alabama Farmers Federation Aug. 1.
She earlier announced plans to leave public office and further her opportunities in the private sector.
Federation President Jimmy Parnell said Chapman's experience, as well as her character, will serve the organization well.
"Beth is a friend of farmers and shares the values, goals and concerns of our members, and we look forward to working with Beth as the Federation supports candidates who will fight for Alabama families," he said.
With the 2014 elections on the horizon, Chapman will help research candidates and advise endorsed candidates on campaign strategies, among other duties.
