National Issues Task Force Update to the Membership & Business Meeting

The National Issues Task Force has been focused on implementation of the new funding horticulture received in the Farm Bill, on building relationships with legislators on key committees and looking forward to the next Farm Bill. One of NITFs goals is to identify how each member's expertise and contacts can help inform better policy and exert influence to benefit horticultural science. The session will provide highlights of the year's successes and plans for next year. The session will conclude with a business meeting of the National Issues Task Force to review priorities.
