NASDA is keenly aware of the challenges and opportunities in agriculture. Agriculture policy based on sound science is critical to the success of our farmers and ranchers. Join us while chief agricultural officials from across the U.S. gather to have critical policy discussions on emerging food and agricultural issues in the heart of New Orleans! Attendees will be immersed in the culture of Louisiana's farm and forest industries which contribute $10 billion annually to the state's economy.

COSDA will have their independent professional development agenda for your communications leaders with meals and tours with NASDA meeting attendees.
