I’m excited for my new webinar series titled “Fridays with Cari.” I will be discussing a variety of agriculture issues with my Friday webinar series ranging from livestock animal cruelty law to estate planning. I believe that legal information should be affordable for everyone in the food and agriculture industry and I hope that my webinars will be educational to my attendees.
All of the webinars are on Fridays at 2pm ET. I’m planning on doing the following webinars this fall/winter and would appreciate if my readers would share this information to those that may be interested:
