The Animal Agriculture Alliance announced its 2018 Stakeholders Summit will be themed Protect Your Roots. The event will be held May 3-4 in Arlington, Va. Registration for the event will open later this year.
The 2018 Summit will inspire attendees representing all facets of animal agriculture to be proud of their past and current roles in the industry and challenge them to be forward-thinking about how we can continue to grow into the future. Even if communication is not part of their job description, Summit attendees will leave with new perspectives on key issues and ready to engage with influencers to secure the future of animal agriculture.
“We continue to break Summit attendance records year after year, with the 2017 event in Kansas City attracting our largest crowd yet,” said Kay Johnson Smith, Alliance president and CEO. “Returning to our Arlington home for the 2018 Summit is a perfect fit for the Protect Your Roots theme. No matter what your role in animal agriculture, if you have a passion for the industry and a vested interest in helping the industry succeed into the future, you need to put our Summit on your calendar.”
The Alliance is currently accepting applications to speak at the event. If you have an idea for a presentation or panel discussion that will provide unique and thought-provoking ideas and focus on actionable items attendees can implement, you are encouraged to submit your application by December 1, 2017.
