It will feature a brief update on Hartnell’s Agriculture and Business Technology Institute, followed by a fireside chat with CDFA Secretary Karen Ross. The full-day program on March 19 will begin with morning business sessions focused on key issues such as workforce challenges and the essential role of education.
