Legislative Conference is an opportunity to spend time in the nation’s Capitol, meeting with key congressional and agency influencers to articulate our industry’s policy priorities. While PLC staff regularly meets with these policy makers, the most influential meetings are with producers that travel to D.C., bringing local perspective to the beltway. Join PLC for its 2020 Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. March 30-31!

On Wednesday, April 1, PLC will host a briefing on Capitol Hill as part of the premiere of our latest public lands campaign. The campaign, Common Ground, features a video that puts a face to the important work public lands ranchers do, and highlights the importance of ensuring regulations and laws work for both the natural resources and the people who manage the land. The premiere tees off the PLC legislative conference, providing the perfect opportunity to bring together western cattle and sheep producers with a wide audience of decisionmakers in DC.
We are excited to have you join us in Washington in just a few short weeks and look forward to showcasing the great work of the industry! Please contact Jaclyn Roberts (jroberts@beef.org) with questions.

“ROPIN’, RIDIN’ & RALLYIN’ FOR RANCH & RODEO YOUTH”
A FUNDRAISER to EMPOWER & ENCOURAGE
"Earn Your Spurs, Inc.” is a non-profit 501c3 organization founded on the idea that our ranching and youth rodeo community in southeastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico is rich in ranch and rodeo traditions, heritage and families working to pass their legacies down to the next generation. In striving to obtain a higher education for the youth choosing to go on to college, some of which have excelled in the rodeo arena, Earn Your Spurs, Inc. will play a role in providing financial assistance and resources to qualified applicants, as well as providing unique opportunities for youth to engage with local college rodeo programs and industry professionals and to encourage unique educational opportunities. This event will directly affect Cochise College Rodeo, Hidalgo Youth Rodeo Association and Willcox Junior Rodeo Association.
Additional invitations will be issued to ranch and rodeo youth in our region that are not affiliated with one of the rodeo associations mentioned above. Please contact us or issue the invitation yourselves, if you know of a youth that would be interested in participating in our event, possible sponsors or volunteers.
