Thank you to all who attended the 2014 AgrAbility National Training Workshop. NAP staff had a great week in Lexington and enjoyed meeting new people, catching up with old friends, and learning more about how AgrAbility can continue to successfully work with farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural workers. The conference had near record-setting attendance this year with 227 people for some or all of the conference, just short of 230 attendees in Indianapolis in 2011. The NAP greatly appreciates everyone taking the time out of busy schedules to join everyone. If you were unable to attend or would like to view the presentations from sessions you missed, the final versions of the presentations will be posted online at workshop.agrability.org/2014/schedule.

Chuck Baldwin attended the Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences (MANRRS) conference in Birmingham, Alabama, March 27-28. More than 850 people were in attendance, including 600 youth and 250 professionals. Good contacts were made with several of the 1890s institutions (Chuck in the picture with Marcus Comer of VA State) with resultant invitations for AgrAbility to hold workshops or events on some of their campuses.
