Rural policy can be a complicated topic that some think can only fully be understood by insiders. Not true, says American Agri-Women. The group is launching its new U.S. Government Affairs webinar series to help everyone better understand today’s most important rural topics.
“As agriculture gets more complicated, the stakes get higher for those who farm, ranch or work in ag-related fields. We can’t be bystanders and let others decide what’s best. We want to help producers, consumers and others better understand the issues, so they can take an active role in shaping policy,” says Doris Mold, AAW’s first vice president of resolutions and vital issues. AAW is the nation’s largest coalition of farm, ranch and agri-business women. The organization is celebrating 40 years of advocating for agriculture and empowering women in agriculture. The first in a three-part webinar series is set for 1 p.m. Central on Thursday, March 19.
The topic: “The Developing Dynamics of Agricultural and Rural Policy in the 114th Congress.” The host is David Ladd, President of RDL & Associates. Ladd has extensive federal public policy experience will cover the makeup of the 114th Congress, overview of Senate and House agriculture committees, issues remaining from the 113th Congress, dynamics of change, stakeholders impacting agriculture and rural policy.
