The West Virginia Department of Agriculture (WVDA) along with West Virginia University Extension will host a meeting of various agricultural groups to gauge interest in establishing a state chapter of the American Agri-Women national organization.
The meeting will be held at the South East Learning Center at Jackson’s Mill in Jane Lew, W.Va., Friday, April 12, at 3 p.m. This meeting is open to the public and is being held in conjunction with the WV Beef Expo.
American Agri-Women was founded in 1974. It is made up of state and commodity affiliate organizations, as well as individual members throughout the country. The group is involved in legislative and regulatory matters at the local, state and national levels, and has been instrumental in student and consumer education about agriculture.
