How can we best prioritize the needs of agriculture in the climate change conversation?   Senator Todd Young will join us to talk about his plan to support farmers seeking to adopt conservation and innovative climate practices on their farms.  A panel of experts will share their ideas on how we can best assist agriculture stakeholders in identifying alternative sources of income, while at the same time empowering them to pursue efforts to restore ecosystems including wetlands and forests, mitigate environmental impacts, and improve water quality.

The ICONIC Agribusiness:  How to Obtain, Retain, and Sustain the Ultimate Level of Distinction
Being distinctive in agribusiness used to be the pinnacle of success.  In today's global marketplace, that mountain is significantly more difficult to climb.  The result is that competition for attention is more intense than ever before.

Merely standing out is more challenging than ever.  It now has less impact on sustained growth.  Today, to become a compelling agribusiness company, leader, or brand on a positive trajectory, you must attain iconic status.
