The 2012 Animal Agriculture Alliance's (AAA) annual Stakeholders Summit will be held May 2-3 in Arlington, Va., and will explore the theme of "Real Farmers Real Food: Celebrating Tradition and Technology."
Topics to be covered include a legislative outlook, positive consumer outreach case studies, activist response strategies, retailer perspectives and international lessons learned.
AAA is a broad-based coalition of individual farmers, ranchers, producer organizations, suppliers, packer-processors, scientists, veterinarians and retailers. The alliance with its members is interested in helping consumers better understand the role animal agriculture plays in providing a safe, abundant food supply to a hungry world.
Summit attendees are encouraged to stay for the adjunct legal workshop, which will offer response strategies to the growing challenge of activist-driven litigation. A group of respected legal professionals will offer case studies and opportunities for agriculture to unite. The workshop is being offered for a fee of $50.
