I will be a panelist speaking on partnerships on Saturday, October 22, 2011 at the American Agriculture Law Association (“AALA”) 32nd Annual Agriculture Law Symposium in Austin, Texas. The name of the session is “Partnerships: The Neglected, The Disaster and The Desirable Plan.” We will be talking about partnerships with farms, ranches and agri-businesses.
The moderator for the session is Patrick K. Costello from Costello, Carlson & Butzon, LLC in Lakefield, Minnesota. The other panelists addressing the group including Robert Moore from Wright Law Co., LP, in Dublin, Ohio and Stephanie Smith, U.S. Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) Rural Development Cooperative Programs in Washington, D.C.
I completed my Bachelor of Science in Animal Science from Texas A & M University so Texas has a special place in my heart. I have a lot of beloved friends in the Lone Star State and hope to travel around the Hill Country north of Austin, the Panhandle near Lubbock, and make my way to the College Station/ Houston area before heading back to New York City. If you would like to visit with me while I am in Texas, please email me at email@example.com.
