Alliance Announces Chance
for Farmers to Win Free
Registrations to
2018 Stakeholders Summit

On Jan 16 the Animal Agriculture Alliance announced that five farmers and ranchers can win a free registration to the 2018 Stakeholders Summit. The 2018 Summit, themed “Protect Your Roots” will be hosted May 3-4 at the Renaissance Capital View Hotel in Arlington, Va.

“Last year the Alliance hosted our first photo contest to encourage farmers to attend our 2017 Summit and received such a great turnout that we’ve decided to host another photo contest this year,” said Hannah Thompson-Weeman, Alliance vice president of communications. “Farmers and ranchers should be at the table to discuss issues impacting the food supply, and we hope to welcome even more producers to our 2018 Summit.”

The Summit will inspire attendees representing all facets of animal agriculture to be proud of their past and current roles in the industry, and challenge them to be forward-thinking about how we can continue to grow into the future. Even if communication is not part of their job description, Summit attendees will leave with new perspectives on key issues and ready to engage with influencers to secure the future of animal agriculture.
