Apologies to my readers for taking a hiatus from blogging the month of July. My blog was changed to a different platform to give me greater flexibility. I hope to start video blogging this fall so please stay tuned. Big thank you to Matt Welsh at Kill Disco Design and Ranch House Designs for helping me with this transition. Now that I am back to blogging again, I would love to hear some comments from my readers on what topics that you would like to be discussed.
As for the month of July, this is what my readers missed:
1. Rincker Law, PLLC moved downtown to 11 Broadway, Suite 615, New York, NY 10004, near the Wall Street bull. Since I’m oftentimes out-of-the-office either in court, real estate closings, meetings or traveling, please make sure to make an appointmnet ahead of time. This office suite has several other attorneys in a myriad of practice areas. On some days, I work from my new home office on the Upper West Side (moved across Central Park). Clients are always welcome at this address as well by appointment.
2. I had a great time at the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (“NCBA”) summer conference in Denver, Colorado. It was nice to get out of the east coast humidity and close to the mountains. I posted some pictures from the conference on Rincker Law, PLLC’s Facebook page. As you might recall, I am the Chair for Young Producers’ Council‘s Public Relations Task Force. I have several subcommittees that are hard at work. For example, the Twitter, Facebook, and Blog subcommittees will each be developing its own “How-To” manual for young beef producers before NCBA Annual Convention in Denver next February. Within these guides, the subcommittees will be highlighting YPC members that are actively using these social media forums. I think it is really important for young cattle producers to get out and utililize these social networking sites not only to be an advocate for agriculture but also to stay appraised on industry news.
3. The New York Agri-Women had a successful meet-up in Syracuse. Pictures are posted on the organization’s Facebook page here and on Rincker Law, PLLC’s Facebook page here. The organization had officer elections this week and the results will be announced soon. With thanks to the organization’s business sponsors, the organization recently hired EDJE Technologies to complete a website for New York Agri-Women. I have particularly enjoyed getting to know women involved in various segments of the agriculture industry throughout New York state.
5. Rincker Law, PLLC is also considering the development of webinars on a variety of topics pertinent to the food and agriculture industry. Please stay tuned for the announcement of those webinars. Would love to hear some suggestions from my readers regarding topics for legal webinars relevant to the food, fiber and biofuel industries.
