Farm & Food Leadership Conference 2020 @ online
Oct 26 – Oct 27 all-day
Farm & Food Leadership Conference 2020 @ online

The 2020 Farm & Food Leadership Conference goes virtual, with regular sessions Monday and Tuesday, October 26-27.

This unique conference focuses on the policies and regulations affecting farms and food, as well as the latest developments in sustainable agriculture. Whether you are a farmer, consumer, chef, local foods business owner, or nonprofit advocate, you will find useful information and tools to help support the growth of the local and sustainable food movement.

While the face-to-face interaction will be missed, there are several advantages to hosting this event online, including:

  • Greater ability to attract top-notch national speakers who might otherwise not be able to participate.
  • The opportunity for people to attend from anywhere, as distance and travel are no longer a barrier.
  • Access to recordings of all sessions will be available to attendees for one full year at no additional charge. That means you won’t have to make that difficult choice between two sessions that run at the same time. Attend one in real time and watch the other later!

Although held virtually this year, this will be as close to an in-person experience as possible, including an Q&A time in each session, a keynote address, a choice of topic-specific sessions during each time slot, and the ability to have conversations with other attendees, even days before and after the Conference.
