NFU 117th Convention

The National Farmers Union will hold its 117th Anniversary Convention March 3rd,4th and 5th in Bellevue, Washington.

Patty Edelburg is with the NFUand says they selected Washington, because the organization had not been in the Northwest for several years, and they also wanted to focus on growing membership there.

She says during the Convention they will not only work on policy, and topics to address in D.C. in 2019, but also issues like tax code changes, extreme consolidation in the Ag sector and climate change.
