(Washington, D.C.) The National Council of Agricultural Employers (NCAE) announced today the opening of registration for the 9th Annual Ag Labor Forum which will be held November 30 – December 2, 2022, at the beautiful M Resort just outside Las Vegas, Nevada. Each year, NCAE’s event brings together key leaders in the agricultural employment and labor communities from across the United States and around the world.
Attorneys, academics, agents, as well as representatives from federal agencies and foreign governments will delve into labor issues facing US agricultural employers. Recent litigation, rulemaking changes and reports on cutting edge legislation impacting farm and ranch operations will be highlighted, as will compliance issues relative to ag employment.
“Back, due to popular demand, is NCAE’s Advocacy Boot Camp where “recruits” learn to master the fundamentals of political advocacy in making their case to legislators, regulators and the public,” said Marsh. “The small group setting makes for a fun and stimulating dialogue as our Boot Camp “recruits” learn how to effectively message positions. The Boot Camp starts the day before the Forum on November 29th and is a sellout event as space is limited. Be sure and register early and avoid the waitlist.”
Also featured this year are concurrent sessions highlighting the H-2A Temporary Agricultural Visa Program. Attendees at these stimulating sessions, along with many others throughout the Forum, are eligible to receive continuing education credit from the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
“Sponsorship opportunities are available for this event that reaches hundreds of attendees,” said Marsh. “Of course, NCAE Members receive a significant discount off registration fees. This event offers members and nonmembers both a “look under the hood” of the battles NCAE wages in Congress and with federal agencies on behalf of agricultural employers. This is a must-attend event!”
Registration for the Advocacy Boot Camp, Labor Forum, H-2A Day and NCAE’s discounted room block, can be accessed by going to www.ncaeonline.org.
NCAE is the national trade association focusing on agricultural labor issues from the employer’s viewpoint.
