This fall in Nashville, Tenn., NMPF will join the National Dairy Board and United Dairy Industry Association to host its joint annual meeting. From October 31-November 2, dairy industry leaders will get together and share in their common accomplishments and challenges, as well as discuss the best paths to follow for the industry's future. Registration information is online here.

Several prominent speakers will be featured at the 100th anniversary meeting of NMPF. Stuart Rothenberg, a leading political analyst, will share his humorous and captivating thoughts about the likely outcome of this year’s historic presidential election, and what’s at stake for the dairy industry.

Nina Teicholz is an investigative journalist and author of the New York Times bestseller “The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat & Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet.” She will discuss how her research and book has upended the conventional wisdom on dietary fat and challenged the very core of nutrition policy.

Leigh Anne Tuohy, the inspirational subject from the real-life story and movie, “The Blind Side,” will speak to luncheon attendees about recognizing the full potential of individuals in their communities and to find value in those who society has deemed valueless.  The banquet entertainers will be the Last Bandoleros, a high-energy country-rock group.

Registration for this year’s meeting will be made available later this week. In the meantime, be sure to view NMPF’s Annual Meeting page for more information.
