CFVGA Offering Scholarships To RMFU Members To Attend Produce Safety Symposium in Denver
The Colorado Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association is providing scholarship opportunities to any Rocky Mountain Farmers Union grower members that would like to attend the Center for Produce Safety Research Symposium. The June 20-21 symposium will be held in Denver. The only stipulations are that CFVGA will reimburse the person $340 of the registration fees and $140/night for a maximum of three nights lodging at the conference hotel if they live more than 80 miles from the meeting AND they are willing to make a presentation about what they learned at a CFVGA sponsored event. CFVGA will work with them on when and where the event would be. It could be something as simple as a coffee shop event in their hometown or it could be in conjunction with the Colorado Ag Water Alliance roundtables that will be held around the state.
If you are interested, we will get them set up to receive the CFVGA scholarship, email Robert Sakata at RTSakata@aol.com
