Early registration rates are available through Friday, Feb. 1 for the Animal Agriculture Alliance’s 2019 Stakeholders Summit themed, A Seat At The Table. The event will be held May 8-9 at the InterContinental at the Plaza Hotel in Kansas City, Missouri. 
The Summit will feature a panel titled, “Conversations Around the Table: Engaging Influencers” with Hana Bieliauskas, digital practice lead at Inspire PR Group, Ruth Woiwode, PhD, manager of livestock audit services at Food Safety Net Services, Lauren Lane, owner and blogger at Lauren Lane Culinarian and Adriane Heins of Heins Family Farms. The panelists will explore how to effectively engage with influencers about animal agriculture and connect with consumers about modern food production. Andy Vance of Feedstuffs will moderate the panel.
“Engaging opinion leaders about animal agriculture can be tricky, but is one of the most effective ways to bridge the communication gap between farm and fork,” said Hannah Thompson-Weeman, Alliance vice president of communications. “Our panel of experts will be sharing personal experiences, tips and lessons learned from influencer farm tours and other tactics that can help attendees plan their own influencer engagement.”
 A Seat At The Table Farmer Photo Contest
The Alliance is hosting a photo contest to offer farmers the opportunity to win a free registration to the event and take their seat at the table. To enter, take a photo of a seat at your table, post it on Instagram or Facebook with a clever caption, tag the photo to @animalagalliance and use the hashtag #AAA19. Farmers can submit their photos through Saturday, February 10 and the Alliance team will select the top photos to be eligible for public voting. The five farmers whose photos receive the most votes will be announced as the winners on Friday, Feb. 15. For full contest details, visit
