Event description

Description

The Ag and Natural Resources cluster is a major economic driver in the Capital Region. To thrive, the cluster needs a robust pipeline of qualified workers, including the next generation of farmers and managers who can deal with complex business and resource challenges.

Please join us Friday, February 22nd for the region’s first Ag Cluster Strong Workforce Program Regional Advisory meeting at Woodland Community College. Following a presentation of new data on high-demand occupations and projected job openings we will hear insights from a great panel featuring ag industry leaders from the region. Additionally, we want to hear from you! Your valued input will help inform Community College investments for programs and activities that will help provide students and workers with the skills they need to fill high-demand occupations. We’ll also explore partnerships for career awareness and work-based learning opportunities.

Panelists Include:

  • Julie Blacklock, Loan Officer, Farm Credit Services Colusa-Glenn
  • Frank Muller, Owner of Muller Ranch, LLC and Chairman of the Board of Pacific Coast Producers
  • David Ogilvie, Vineyard Manager/Wine Maker, Wilson Vineyards; Winemaker, Muddy Book Wine, Silt Wine Co.
