Annual meeting registration open

The NPC 2016 Annual Meeting will connect attendees with grower leaders from across the country in order to shape national public policy impacting potato production and distribution. These policies have a real impact on the day-to-day operation of your business and there is no voice too small to make a real impact. Topics of discussion include trade, environment, legislative and government affairs and more.
