Dinner & Fireside Chat with Brad Wall (Umbria room)

Join Brad as a part of our evening dinner, for a “fireside chat” on where agriculture policy has moved in the past 50 years and where some of the highlights may be in the future. This fun, light-hearted segment will provide a few laughs, a walk down memory lane and some challenges for the future.
