Supporting this community of owners, families, employees and suppliers has always been the mission of Western Growers. By attending our 91st Annual Meeting, you’ll have the opportunity to connect face-to-face with your peers and learn from industry leaders about the key issues affecting agriculture today, including upcoming political changes, immigration policy and its impact on your workforce, advancements in farming technology and management of the resources essential to your profitability.
Featured events include:
- The Criminal Liability for Food Safety Violations workshop, addressing the Yates Memo and offering strategies for dealing with increased criminal liability in the fresh produce industry.
- The Innovation Arena workshop, introducing you to the cutting edge of agricultural technology designed to help you produce food more efficiently and profitably.
- The Political Action Committee (PAC) lunch, featuring keynote speaker Jim Nicholson and his political insider’s view on the eve of one of the most controversial elections in recent history.
- Top Chef, the Hawaiian-Style Family Games and shotgun golf outing, all offering fun opportunities to develop new industry contacts.
- The 2016 Award of Honor Dinner, recognizing recipients Miles and Garland Reiter, and featuring world-renowned impressionist, comedian and singer Jeff Tracta.
The future of agriculture is only as strong as our combined commitment to the farming community. Attending the 91st Western Growers Annual Meeting is an investment in that future and the families we feed.
