Stakeholders Summit
May 8-9 | Kansas City, Missouri

"A Seat at the Table"

The table is where we come together to connect. To engage with each other. To hear from and be heard. The conversation surrounding animal agriculture has been going on for much too long without engagement between key stakeholders in restaurant, retail and foodservice companies, farms and ranches, government agencies, agribusinesses, and agriculture and food associations. Come take your seat at the table at the 2019 Summit to learn about key issues facing food and agriculture and gain the supportive network and tools you need for success in your business.
