Registration opens for NCAE ag labor forum
The National Council of Agricultural Employers (NCAE) has opened registration for the 10th annual Ag Labor Forum.
The event is scheduled for Nov. 29 – Dec. 1 at the M Resort outside of Las Vegas, Nevada.
Each year, NCAE’s labor event brings together key leaders in the agricultural employment and labor communities from across the U.S. and around the world, according to a news release.
Attorneys, academics, agents, as well as representatives from federal agencies and foreign governments are scheduled to delve into labor issues facing U.S. agricultural employers. Recent litigation, rulemaking changes and reports on cutting edge legislation impacting farm and ranch operations nationwide will be highlighted, as will compliance issues relative to ag employment.
NCAE has developed new programming to help celebrate NCAE’s 10th Ag Labor Forum. This year’s speakers feature a diverse range of topics including how employers can protect themselves in the face of union activity, hot topics in ag labor safety, tax issues relative to ag employment and many others.
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.
“Sponsorship opportunities are available for this event that reaches hundreds of attendees,” Michael Marsh, NCAE’s president and CEO, said in the release. “Of course, NCAE Members receive a significant discount off registration fees,” Marsh said in the release. “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 Labor Forum, H-2A Day and NCAE’s discounted room block, can be accessed at ncaeonline.org.
The Washington, DC-based NCAE is the national trade association focusing on agricultural labor issues from the employer’s viewpoint.
