Annual Meeting

The annual meeting is a more personal gathering of members where we present the current events pertaining to ag, and more specifically, how we are addressing those issues. This reception is an opportunity for members to connect with other members, become educated on the issues, and to see how they can get more involved. With a key-note speaker and a cocktail reception, this is an event you'd hate to miss. 

 

This year's event was held on February 6, 2024 at the Embassy Suites! 

Keep watching for more details on the upcoming 2025 meeting but SAVE THE DATE Tuesday, February 4, 2025.
