Farm Bureau to Work With Informa Economics to Produce Six Policy Roundtables in 2019

Tue, 11 Dec 2018 05:25:21 CST

Farm Bureau to Work With Informa Economics to Produce Six Policy Roundtables in 2019 The American Farm Bureau Federation and Informa Agribusiness Consulting are collaborating to host six economic and policy roundtables in 2019. The 2019 Policy Roundtable Series provides a forum for policy and agribusiness leaders to network and stay abreast of fast-moving economic and policy issues affecting agriculture and the agribusiness community.

“Informa’s policy roundtables have a rich tradition of bringing together policy and agribusiness leaders from around the world to review the challenges and opportunities for U.S. agriculture,” said AFBF Chief Economist Dr. John Newton. “We are excited to bring this roundtable series to American Farm Bureau Federation’s headquarters and to share our grassroots-developed policies.”

According to Joe Somers, vice president at Informa, “The series is dedicated to understanding and helping clients contend with policy changes that will shape the future of U.S. agriculture, trade, environmental and energy policies. The Roundtable offers clients the opportunity to stay informed of developments as they occur, and gain unique insight from and interact with top government and industry leaders on the many issues that emerge in this debate.”

The Policy Roundtable Series will bring together a unique combination of agricultural information in the areas of policy, marketing, legislation and consumer and environmental concerns. Sessions will include policy updates from AFBF and Informa Agribusiness Consulting experts as well as invited subject matter experts.

The Informa Agribusiness Consulting 2019 Policy Roundtable Series hosted by AFBF at the organization’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., will be held six times in 2019: Feb. 13, April 3, May 22, June 26, Sept. 18 and Oct. 30.     

To register for the 2019 Informa Policy Roundtable Series hosted by AFBF, contact Somers (joe.somers@informaecon.com or 202-899-6307).
