Don’t Miss Farmers Union’s Virtual Convention March 1st & 2nd!
Join the National Farmers Union for the final session of their 119th Anniversary Convention!
Members, industry professionals, policymakers, and reporters will gather online for remarks from Congressional leadership and administration officials, awards ceremonies, and the organization’s signature grassroots policy adoption process.
Held on Monday, March 1st and Tuesday, March 2nd, the concluding session wraps up a month-long virtual event – NFU’s first convention to be held fully online. The more than 500 family farmers and ranchers who have registered have had the opportunity to attend their choice of ten educational sessions on the issues that matter most to them, including climate change, mental health, corporate consolidation in the agricultural industry, cooperative development, and racial equity. No worries if you weren’t able to attend these sessions live – recordings of all webinars can be viewed on NFU’s YouTube channel.
