NFU's 116th Anniversary Convention

NFU's 116th Anniversary Convention will gather family farmers and ranchers from across the country, industry professionals and notable speakers at The Westin Kansas City at Crown Center in Kansas City, Missouri in March 2018. The convention provides NFU members and attendees the opportunity to learn, collaborate and grow through thoughtful discussions, breakout sessions and farm tours. We are pleased to offer attendees new learning opportunities this year while maintaining a focus on the issues that matter most to our family farmers and ranchers, such as the economy and defending the farm safety net. Stay tuned for more information!
