The ISU Sustainable Agriculture Student Association has graciously agreed to host us on the ISU campus again this year, and we hope to have a lot of students in attendance!
We have a busy schedule planned. We have two amazing and talented women – IFU board member Sally Gran and emeritus board member Donna Winburn – who will lead off the convention with a keynote address on the history of IFU and the transition to a new generation of family farming and family farm advocacy. We also are putting together a great workshop on what farmers and rural communities can expect from the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and its impact on access to affordable health insurance. At noon, we will have our annual awards luncheon featuring local foods. And of course, we will be having a lively debate of the farm, food, energy and rural policy priorities that will guide all of our advocacy work in 2013.
A registration form for the convention is available at this link.
