“After an extensive search and interview process, Jay was an easy choice for the new Executive Vice President, said Bryan Mussard, President of MSGA. “He’s been with the Association for sixteen years, he is well respected throughout the state and we want to expand on his potential.”
Bodner, a native of Raynesford, Mont., has worked for MSGA for the past 16 years as the Director of Natural Resources and lead lobbyist. During his tenure at MSGA, he also served as Executive Director of the Montana Public Lands Council and the Montana Association of State Grazing Districts.

Jay Bodner is a great choice to fill this role! MSGA is very lucky to have such a strong and seasoned Lieutenant waiting in the wings to step up to this responsibility. The organization will not miss a beat; especially important in working with the Legislature, just seven months from now.
