Jim Ennis to Address NFU Convention
"Vocation of the Agricultural Leader" to be his topic
This weekend, Jim Ennis will address farmers attending the annual National Farmers Union convention taking place this year in Minneapolis. He will make his remarks during the opening banquet and talk about the vocation of the agricultural leader and our Faith, Food & Environment project during the opening banquet, Saturday evening, March 5.
The NFU convention runs through March 5-8. Select presentations and highlights from the convention can be downloaded at this link. (We'll let you know if Jim's presentation is posted!)
During the Sunday morning opening session, NFU will make a p
osthumous presentation of their Meritorious Service Award to former CRL executive director, Brother David Andrews. He passed away last January at age 70 after a period of failing health, but is remembered for his long-time support of family farmers and his strong voice for rural life and social justice.
