Be Part of the 2019 NEAFA Lobby Day


Announcing: The 2019 NEAFA Lobby Day

Monday, February 11, 2019
10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Government is run by those who show up!  We need you to be part of the team in Albany on February 11, 2019 to advocate for:


  • FarmNet

  • IPM

  • Ag Nonpoint Source Funding

  • FFA

  • Farm Viability Institute

  • Farm Labor Specialist

There is new leadership in both the Assembly and Senate which makes our advocacy work even more important. 

  • The State Senate is controlled by the Democratic Caucus this year, yet only five members of this new majority represents Upstate NY.   

  • The Assembly Agriculture Committee has a new chair for the first time in over 15 years! 

  • The agriculture community must develop new relationships with the new leaders and you are invited to be part of this effort on February 11th.  

  • All the programs listed above are subject to a state budget appropriation.  Our voices must be heard to maintain support for these important programs.   

This event is free! All you need to do is register to be part of the February 11, 2019 Lobby Day is click here.  

The NEAFA Lobby Day is separate from our Annual Meeting this year because we will be in Florida, March 3-6 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort for the 2019 Annual Meeting and Forum.  Click here for more annual meeting information.
