Don’t Miss the Chance to Attend this Year’s WG Annual Meeting PAC Luncheon

The 2023 Western Growers Annual Meeting PAC Luncheon is a must-attend event for meeting attendees who are interested in the political conversations happening within the agricultural industry. The Western Growers Political Action Committee (PAC) provides strategic campaign support to elected officials and candidates. Proceeds from our annual PAC Luncheon help amplify our members’ voices in political contests across Arizona, California and elsewhere.

The event will be on Monday, November 13 from 12-2 p.m. and will feature guest speaker Michael Shellenberger.

Michael Shellenberger, a leading investigative journalist, is the best-selling author of “San Fransicko: Why Progressives Ruin Cities” (HarperCollins 2021) and “Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All” (HarperCollins 2020). Apocalypse Never has been translated into over 15 languages.

He is founder and president of Environmental Progress, an independent nonprofit research organization that incubates ideas, leaders and movements. Shellenberger is a Time Magazine “Hero of the Environment,” and Green Book Award winner. He is cofounder of the California Peace Coalition, an alliance of parents of children killed by fentanyl, parents of homeless addicts, and recovering addicts.

Along with his journalistic accomplishments, he is a leading energy expert who testifies and advises governments worldwide, including in the United States, United Kingdom, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, the Philippines, Australia, the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. He is an expert on climate change, energy policy and the environment. He is known for his thought-provoking and controversial ideas and his willingness to challenge conventional wisdom. Shellenberger ran for California governor as an independent in 2022.
