Thursday, November 7 • 4:00pm - 7:30pm
Organizing for the Northeastern Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NEASDA)

The session will start with an overview of the different national and regional players, and the history of our engagement with them. We will hear from past attendees of NASDA and NEASDA conferences so that everyone can understand what happens at these meetings, what the opportunities are, and what can be expected. From there we will turn our attention to the future and break into smaller groups to brainstorm different ideas for strategies moving forward, and reconvene to share these ideas with each other. The final part of the session will be putting the plan to action. We will ask for volunteers to lead different components of the work, and make a plan for the next 6 months for how to engage a diverse group of folks and what the goals are leading up to NEASDA 2020 in Vermont.
