The Region 1 Conference at UMASS Amherst April 27 & 28, 2019 was a great conference! The Region 1 Leadership Team provided a networking opportunity, Meet Your Barn Mates. Every completed Meet Your Barn Mates entry went into a drawing for 2020 Conference Registration paid for by NESAR. Kate Jeton from ME was the winner and will be attending the 2020 Region 1 Conference at Full Circle Farm in Warner, NH April 25 & 26! At lunch, we were fortunate to have Kathy Alm, PATH Intl.
