The American Seed Trade Association (ASTA) will be in Washington, D.C. June 9-13 for the new ASTA Policy & Leadership Development Conference.
This new event combines ASTA’s annual convention, which has been held each June in different locations for the past 134 years, and the organization’s annual Storm the Hill lobbying day on Capitol Hill.
Educational session tracks will cover: Innovation; Trade/International; Sustainability; and Leadership Development. Featured speakers will include representatives from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Department of Agriculture, World Wildlife Fund, U.S. Grains Council, National Association of State Departments of Agriculture, Field-to-Market Sustainability Initiative, and much more. In addition to in-depth educational sessions, the conference will showcase all-new “Lightning Talks” – fast-paced, 15-minute segments featuring the latest inside news from political leaders, industry innovators, and more. The week will conclude with ASTA members visiting Congressional offices to discuss seed industry legislative priorities.
Registration is now open to “Make Your Voice Heard” in Washington, D.C.
