NMPF Board of Directors to Meet Next Week

June 4, 2012

The NMPF Board of Directors (BOD) will convene for its summer meeting next Tuesday and Wednesday, June 12 and 13, at the Westin Alexandria in Alexandria, VA.

The board will receive updates on current Farm Bill negotiations, including the status of dairy policy reforms known as the Dairy Security Act (originally developed by NMPF as the “Foundation for the Future” package). Aside from the board meeting, other important events will include a CWT Committee Meeting, the NMPF Officers Meeting, and the NMPF Scholarship Committee Meeting.

NMPF’s Young Cooperators (YCs) will also be in town to attend meetings of their own and visit their representatives on Capitol Hill. NMPF’s annual Capitol Hill Reception will take place the evening of June 12 and will give NMPF members the opportunity to meet prominent figures in Congress and other governmental areas.
