Since May, USMEF members have had a convenient new method of reading USMEF updates and accessing the latest information on red meat exports.
The USMEF mobile application is now available as a free download for iPhone and Android phones, through iTunes (from your iPhone, choose the USMEF app offered by Eugene Group Inc.) or Google Play (from your Android, choose USMEF 1.2).
Use the USMEF mobile app to get updates leading up to, and during, USMEF’s 40th Anniversary & Strategic Planning Conference, Nov. 2-4, in Carlsbad, California.
The agenda is a unique mix of reports from the most vital U.S. beef, pork and lamb markets, committee meetings, and, of course, election of USMEF officers.
Key speakers include:
- Scott Aughenbaugh, deputy director of strategic futures at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
- Jim McKenna, president and CEO of the Pacific Maritime Association.
Aughenbaugh will discuss demographics, resource management, computing, data/information growth, social media, effects of economic integration and emerging security challenges – critical information used to forecast global trends.
McKenna will cover current strategies to ensure smooth and efficient West Coast port operations and other issues impacting the shipping industry.
The Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, approximately 30 miles north of San Diego, sits atop a high ridge on the shore of Batiquitos Lagoon, a beautiful wildlife sanctuary overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Amenities of the hotel include a spa, an Arnold Palmer-designed golf course, swimming pools and numerous restaurant options. It is also just a quick, 15-minute drive to the quaint beachside towns of Carlsbad and Encinitas.
We look forward to seeing you in Carlsbad to celebrate this milestone. Register by Oct. 4 to receive the discounted meeting rate! If you have questions or need further information about the USMEF mobile app, please email Ralph Loos or call him at 303-623-3628.
