Western Growers Vice President and General Counsel Jason Resnick will speak at this important workshop to discuss the future of immigration and ag labor. America's broken immigration system provides almost no usable avenues for less skilled foreigners to enter the country and work legally, and the programs that exist are cumbersome and unpredictable. The result: many American farmers and other employers are unable to find the reliable labor force they need to sustain their businesses and contribute to the economy. Please join ImmigrationWorks for a half-day conference on designing a better agricultural temporary worker program. What ideas are being discussed in Washington for redesigning or replacing the existing H-2A program? What do farmers need? What would work best for California agriculture? What are the prospects for change and when?

Register online. Registration is $30.
