This organization is for legislative members who serve on Ag committees, State Ag Directors and others who have a leadership role in agriculture issues in the United States and Canada. A conference is held every year (except this year) at a different location around the country and Canada.  I first attended a S.A.R.L. conference in 2016 and have attended every year since.It is very educational and allows us to compare notes on various issues around the country, as well as building relationships with other Ag leaders from around the continent In 2019 I was elected to the Board of Directors at the conference in Calgary. It is an honor to serve on such a prestigious organization that is working so hard to promote and support agriculture issues.
