PASAbilities Series

Every year, our attendees asked to hear more from the inspirational experts sitting with them in the audience. So, beginning with the 20th annual conference in 2011, we introduced the PASAbilities Leadership Award Series. On Saturday of the conference, we will feature two speakers, this year’s winners of our Sustainable Ag Leadership Award as well as the Sustainable Ag Business Leader Award! Nominate someone for the PASAbilities Series
