Ag Labor Forum, Advocacy Boot Camp registration starts

The National Council of Agricultural Employers (NCAE) has opened registration for the 9th Annual Ag Labor Forum.

The forum will be Nov. 30-Dec. 2 at the M Resort near Las Vegas.

Each year, NCAE’s event brings together key leaders in the agricultural employment and labor communities from across the United States and around the world.

Attorneys, academics, agents, as well as representatives from federal agencies and foreign governments will delve into labor issues facing U.S. agricultural employers. Recent litigation, rulemaking changes and reports on cutting-edge legislation affecting farm and ranch operations will be highlighted, as will compliance issues relative to ag employment.

“Back, due to popular demand, is NCAE’s Advocacy Boot Camp where ‘recruits’ learn to master the fundamentals of political advocacy in making their case to legislators, regulators and the public,” Michael Marsh, NCAE president and CEO, said in a news release. “The small group setting makes for a fun and stimulating dialogue as our Boot Camp ‘recruits’ learn how to effectively message positions. The Boot Camp starts the day before the forum, on Nov. 29 and is a sellout event as space is limited. Be sure and register early and avoid the waitlist.”

Also featured this year are concurrent sessions highlighting the H-2A Temporary Agricultural Visa Program. Attendees at these stimulating sessions, along with many others throughout the forum, are eligible to receive continuing education credit from the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).

“Sponsorship opportunities are available for this event that reaches hundreds of attendees,” Marsh said. “Of course, NCAE Members receive a significant discount off registration fees. This event offers members and nonmembers both a ‘look under the hood’ of the battles NCAE wages in Congress and with federal agencies on behalf of agricultural employers. This is a must-attend event!”
