(Washington, D.C.) The National Council of Agricultural Employers (NCAE) announces that the highly anticipated agenda for its 10th Annual Ag Employer Labor Forum has been revealed. The event opens November 29th and runs through December 1st, 2023. The Forum is being held at the beautiful M Resort just outside Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Labor Forum will provide attendees with an opportunity to engage with industry leaders in in-depth discussions regarding the wide array of issues impacting agricultural employers.
“This year’s Labor Forum is shaping up to be the best yet with hot topics that agricultural employers cannot miss,” noted Michael Marsh, NCAE’s President and CEO. “We have stimulating speakers discussing timely topics for employers where attendees can receive continuing education credit from the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).”
Attorneys, academics, agents, and representatives from federal agencies and foreign governments will be on hand to dive headfirst into labor issues facing US agricultural employers. Rulemaking changes, cutting edge reports on agricultural labor data and expert-led presentations on the latest legislation impacting farm and ranch operations will be highlighted, as will compliance issues relative to ag employment.
Also featured this year are concurrent sessions highlighting not only hot legal topics facing ag employers, tips to navigate the administration’s activist regulatory hammer, and compliance considerations for Farm Labor Contractors, but also how to responsibly recruit high quality employees in a cost-effective manner.
And, just for fun, the evening of the Forum’s first day will be topped off with a winetasting reception featuring premium Washington wines from Mercer Ranches. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the Forum’s many sponsors, network with other agricultural employers and unwind after a day filled with engaging speakers and information. The wines will be paired with delicious hors d’oeuvres for attendees to enjoy.
“With all of the activity in the agricultural labor space this year, this year’s Forum is an event not to miss,” stated Marsh.
