I first heard of the American Agri-Women (“AAW”) (a.k.a. @Women4Ag) when I was interned on Capitol Hill for Congressman Kevin Brady (R-TX). They are a national organization of women involved in the agriculture industry who help shape legislation at the national, state, and local levels. They have affiliates in several states but not New York. AAW is working with some women in New York who are interested in helping start a state affiliate. We’ll be having a teleconference next Wednesday afternoon. If you are interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you the conference call dial-in information.
AAW will be stopping by NYC June 17-18th after the legislative conference in Washington D.C. Please mark these dates on your calendar. The itinerary is in the works. We may also try to organize a meeting in Albany and/or Syracuse this spring. If you are interested in attending either of these meetings, please email me your contact information.
Would love to have as many New York women involved in agriculture involved as we can. The more hands on deck the better!
