NCBA CLUSA is organizing this webinar series in partnership with the USDA to convening the cooperative stakeholder community to hear directly from Administrator Salerno on the many ongoing changes and the strategic direction her agency is taking as it implements many Administration and Department priorities and initiatives, including the recent Farm Bill. This webinar series is expected to take place once a month with new topics and discussion points.

Expected topics may include community economic development, Promise Zones, the Rural Cooperative Development Grant program, the Interagency Working Group on cooperative development, among others.
