The Western Agricultural Processors Association (WAPA) is holding its 2019 Annual Meeting at the Monterey Marriott & Monterey Conference Center on June 19-21.  AgNet West is partnering with WAPA for coverage of their annual meeting this year. Aside from WAPA’s annual meeting, several speakers will give critical updates on water, the Produce Safety Rule, tax law updates and the latest regulatory changes. Registration is still open but for those unable to attend the meeting, AgNet West will be interviewing the speakers at our booth and broadcasting live on Facebook.

Natalie Krout-Greenburg from the California Department of Food and Agriculture will be providing insight on the implementation of the Produce Safety Rule as part of the Food Safety Modernization Act.  Mike Wade from the California Farm Water Coalition will also be giving a presentation on the current water situation in California.  Other presentations will include a look at current tax and labor laws, as well as important information about what is going on in Sacramento.  There will also be regulatory and legislative updates from various WAPA personnel.

Over the course of three days, attendees will also have the opportunity to network with other industry members, enjoy the Annual WAPA Membership Dinner which features comedian Craig Shoemaker, experience the WAPA trade show, as well as participate in the annual golf tournament.
