Board of Directors Meeting

MAY 25-27, 2011

Register now to attend the U.S. Meat Export Federation’s (USMEF) 35th Annual Board of Directors Meeting, May 25-27, 2011, at the historic Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Invited speakers will provide insights into the current administration’s trade agenda, the impact of the budget process on export market development programs and what they mean for our industry and for international trade. USMEF’s international directors will discuss the latest market developments during the committee meetings and focus on issues specifically relevant to your business.

The Friday closing General Session will include an update from the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative along with a panel discussion on the agricultural budget outlook.

For those arriving early to the meeting, USMEF encourages you to take advantage of the opportunity created by our meeting in Washington to set up visits with your Congressional representatives. This would be an excellent time to discuss the importance of exports and emphasize the importance of maintaining funding for USDA’s MAP and FMD programs. USMEF will provide talking points to those attendees interested.

The Omni Shoreham Hotel is a stone’s throw from the Metro and a quick ride away from the U.S. Capitol, monuments and memorials on the National Mall as well as cultural treasures like the Smithsonian, the Library of Congress and the National Gallery of Art. A diverse and beautiful world capital, Washington invites visitors to step beyond these national landmarks and explore charming neighborhoods like historic Georgetown, eclectic Adams-Morgan and trendy U Street where chic boutiques, restaurants and bars compete with world-class theatres, art galleries and tranquil gardens.

Register now to take advantage of the discounted registration fee. We look forward to seeing you in our nation’s capital.
