Webcast: What the 2012 Elections Mean for Rural Policy

Farm Foundation  will be hosting a webcast on November 14 to examine how the 2012 elections will impact agriculture, food, and rural policy.  The forum will take place from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.  A panel of industry thought leaders will provide their perspectives on the subject. The panel includes:

  • Craig Jagger, Legis Consulting
  • Ferd Hoefner, Policy Director, National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition Robert Paarlberg, Professor of Political Science, Wellesley College Christopher Waldrop, Director of the Food Policy Institute, Consumer Federation of America
  • John Hardin, Indiana farmer
  • Erik Johnston, Associate Legislative Director for Agriculture and Rural Affairs, National Association of Counties

Because of strong interest in the topic, especially in light of pending action on the next federal farm legislation, Farm Foundation will webcast this Forum free of charge.

Webcast viewers will hear a range of perspectives from the presenters, learn from the questions asked by the audience in the room, and be able–via the webcast–to ask their own questions of the presenters.

To register, simply go to www.visualwebcaster.com/Farmfoundationforum.

Farm Foundation, NFP  provides objective information to foster deeper understanding of issues shaping the future for agriculture, food systems and rural regions.
