  • ASTA, PLDC, Policy and Leadership Development Conference, Under Secretary of Agriculture

Early registration closes this week and group hotel rates close Thursday, May 10 for ASTA’s new Policy and Leadership Development Conference (PLDC) June 9-13 in Washington D.C.! Under Secretary of Agriculture Greg Ibach (formerly Nebraska’s Commissioner of Agriculture) has recently been added to the dynamic line-up of speakers for this critical industry event.


Building on the successful legacy of ASTA’s Annual Convention held each June, the PLDC will help the association tackle the current policy issues facing our industry, while addressing our larger industry challenge of preparing emerging leaders to take the reins of our businesses in the future. The conference will feature four session tracks, covering: innovation; trade/international issues; sustainability; and leadership development. The week of learning will be capped off by ASTA’s popular Storm the Hill lobbying day on Capitol Hill.
