Agri-Pulse has announced its annual Ag & Food Policy Summit at the National Press Club has been postponed from March 23 to June 22 due to the evolving situation in the nation’s Capitol regarding coronavirus.

“We have been looking forward to seeing you at our Ag & Food Policy Summit on March 23 while actively monitoring events related to the coronavirus (Covid-19) unfold. We have listened carefully to advice about the need to practice social distancing, along with taking other preventative measures,” said Agri-Pulse Editor and Publisher Sara Wyant. “However, the virus continues to spread, increasing the risk of face-to-face meetings that make events like ours so valuable. This morning, the Sergeant at Arms announced that access will be limited to the Capitol Complex until April 1 and some offices are already starting to shut down in light of the discovery that a Senate staff member tested positive for the coronavirus.”

Those already registered for the March 23 event will have their reservation maintained but those who are unable to make the June 22 date should contact Agri-Pulse.
