New York Agri-Women will have its 4th Annual Meeting on November 14-15, 2014 in Auburn, New York. New York Agri-Women’s President, Prof. Sheila Marshman, has done a fantastic job rallying the troops to get the annual meeting organized. This year’s theme is “Honoring the Past, Treasuring the Present, Shaping the Future” — a brilliant way to sum up how many of us feel in the agriculture industry.
Here are a few of the noted speakers for the event:
- Margaret Smith, PhD of Cornell University, will serve as the keynote speaker delivering her insightful and unbiased speech, GMO-Everything You Need to Know.
- Alexandra Erath, of the Voss Group, will moderate a panel discussion, Raising the Next Generation and Beyond.
- Mary Ellen “Mel” Chesbro, the Agriculture Manager at the Great New York State fair will provide a how-to-discussion, Working Together for Success in Agriculture and Beyond.
- Jamie Sonneville, owner of ITCLIX, will host a work shop specializing in social networking, consumer technology, and collaborative educational technologies to make the lives of those in agriculture more effective and efficient.

I strongly believe in fostering female leadership and strengthening their voice in the food and agriculture industry. The purpose of New York Agri-Women is three-fold: to educate (1) consumers, (2) elected officials, and (3) other women involved in the New York food and agriculture industry. “The world is run by those who show up”, as Robert Johnson famously said. So save the date!
