[Randy Gordon quote]
The NGFA convention's sessions feature a diverse group of speakers addressing the issues important to NGFA members.
• Greg Page, chairman and CEO, Cargill Inc., will provide his views on the general business climate, Cargill's priorities and future business prospects in his keynote address.
• As the leading organization representing the interests of agricultural shippers and receivers, NGFA's annual convention is a forum for members to meet with their rail carriers to discuss business issues. Matt Rose, president and CEO, BNSF Railway, will share his views on the railroads' service to U.S. agriculture and the business climate for rail transportation.
• The Hudson Institute's Dennis Avery and PRX Geographic's Marty Ruikka team up on a thought-provoking program title, "Climate Change: Impacts on Crop Production and Sustainability" that may challenge the ways we think about climate change and its impacts.
• Formerly a partner at the NGFA’s outside counsel and now managing partner at Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, Melissa Bailey has represented companies in major proceedings before OSHA and will share her unique insights on today’s changed regulatory climate in her presentation, “OSHA – The NewRisk Factor for Grain, Feed and Processing Facility Managers.”
