The early bird deadline has been pushed back for the first-ever Ag LEAD Summit, a new agricultural promotion and education event. Interested attendees now have until Feb. 7 to get the discounted rate. The summit will be held March 8-9, 2019 at the Red Lion Hotel in Appleton.
The event is being coordinated by WFBF’s Promotion and Education Committee whose mission is to build awareness and understanding of agriculture and provide leadership development for the agricultural community.
“The Ag LEAD Summit is the first event of its kind hosted by our committee,” WFBF Promotion and Education Committee chair Andrea Brossard said. “Registration is open to anyone interested in agriculture education and promotion. We want everyone to come together with the common goal of effectively engaging with consumers.”
Ag LEAD stands for leadership, engagement, advocacy and development. The summit will give attendees the opportunity to learn more about tools, resources, ideas and best practices when advocating for agriculture and conducting promotional events. Keynote speakers for the event include Donna Moenning with the Center for Food Integrity and Jay Hill a New Mexico farmer, entrepreneur and agricultural advocate. A full list of speakers and workshops can be found here.
