This year’s forum will take on many prevailing issues affecting modern day agriculture. “Managing for our future is essential for our industry as we continue to experience tremendous internal and external challenges,” stated Conventions Committee Chair, Mark Anderson. “Industry consolidation, trade wars, low commodity prices, and climate change are a few of the issues that will be addressed by an outstanding lineup of speakers. Our Annual Forum is open to all who are interested in being part of the discussions.”
