In accordance with the Farm Bill, we host a Public Conversation to update the public and members of the food and agriculture community about our work. This annual event includes a forum for the public and members of the food and agriculture community to address our leadership.
During the 2016 Public Conversation, attendees heard from our Executive Director Dr. Sally Rockey and then Board Chair and former Secretary of Agriculture Dan Glickman. They announced the initial Challenge Areas and welcomed newly appointed board members.
The 2016 Public Conversation also celebrated the one-year anniversary of our inaugural Executive Director Dr. Sally Rockey and the progress we made under her leadership.
We thank those who joined us and offer a special thank you to the Association of Public and Land Grant Universities (APLU), who generously provided the space.
