Registration has opened for the Animal Agriculture Alliance’s 2022 Stakeholders Summit, themed “Come Together for Animal Ag: Be Informed, Be Ready, Be Here!”
The event will bring together thought leaders from across the food supply chain to discuss hot-button issues and innovative ideas to connect the farm and food communities, engage influencers and protect the future of animal agriculture.
The in-person event is slated for May 11-12 in Kansas City, Missouri. A virtual attendance option also will be available with five preconference webinars scheduled for the weeks leading up to the main event.
An outline of the Summit agenda has been posted on the event website and the full speaker lineup will be announced soon.
“The Alliance is delighted to welcome Summit attendees back to Kansas City for our first in-person event since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Kay Johnson Smith, Alliance president and CEO, said in a news release. “We know that the most effective way to safeguard the future of animal agriculture is to come together in person. The 2022 Stakeholders Summit is the perfect place to do just that as we bring together farmers, ranchers, veterinarians, animal feed companies, animal health companies, processors, allied associations and others involved in getting food from farm to fork.”
Tyne Morgan, host of U.S. Farm Report, will serve as moderator for the Summit. More information about the event can be found by following the hashtag #AAA22, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (703) 562-5160.
