2014 Legislative Agriculture Chairs Summit

Thank you!

Thantk you to everyone who helped to make the thirteenth annual Legislative Agriculture Chairs Summit held January 3-5 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma such a huge success.

The last year has been a wild ride for agriculture and rural communities. Our farmers, rural residents and legislatures have been facing numerous challenges and opportunities. As state and provincial legislators responsible for adjusting and implementing the policies that address food production, natural resource management and rural development, we hear from everyone with an issue related to economic development, food, fiber or energy production. It is beyond difficult for us to stay informed on every issue that impacts our rural communities.

That is where State Agriculture and Rural Leaders (SARL) and the Legislative Agriculture Chairs (LAC) Summit comes in. Since 2001, the LAC Summit has been providing a non-partisan unparalleled educational opportunity for elected state and provincial officials with an interest in agriculture and rural communities to work together, collaborate and create problem-solving partnerships.
