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 inaugural Public Conversation, we hosted an interview with our Executive Director Dr. Sally Rockey and then Board Chair and former Secretary of Agriculture Dan Glickman.
Eleven guest speakers from a diverse group of food and agriculture research community members shared insight and ideas on our leadership approach, as we began addressing food and agriculture’s pressing challenges.
The following guest speakers delivered remarks during the 2015 Public Conversation:
Thank you to the speakers and attendees for joining us. A special thank you to the Association of Public and Land Grant Universities (APLU), who generously provided the space for this event.
