Please join us in welcoming NCAE’s newest addition, Jake Oatess! Jake is working in our offices this summer as our Policy Intern and has already hit the ground running! Jake has started familiarizing himself with Ag Employer issues, writing up webinar summaries, researching and writing model polices for the workplace, and learning how to use the back-end of the NCAE Website. We are very grateful to Jake for his strong work ethic and good attitude!
On Tuesday, Jake attended an ASAE (American Society of Association Executives) breakfast with Frank where they met Representative Debbie Dingell of Michigan!
Also this week, Frank spoke to a leadership training group at the State Department about H-2A Visa Issues and shared this Briefing Paper with them. Additionally, Frank participated in Hill receptions where he was able to visit with leadership of several key NCAE Members and allies including National Council of Farmer Cooperatives, Western Growers, Farm Credit (both NCAE Member Farm Credit East and the national group), and United Fresh.
