Friday January 4th, 2013

Township supervisors are invited to join other public officials at the 10th Annual Pennsylvania Farm Show Public Officials Day on Thursday, January 10, during the Pennsylvania Farm Show.

This day dedicated to public officials features networking and teambuilding opportunities with officials from local, state, and national government.

Public officials will be honored at a brunch scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. in the PA Preferred Banquet Hall of the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg.

Township officials planning to attend the brunch should contact Ben Junkin at (717) 787-5789 or bejunkin@pa.gov.

Following the brunch, be sure to stay and attend a Transportation and Agriculture Forum, sponsored by the Keystone Transportation Funding Coalition and PennAg Industries Association. The forum, scheduled for 2 to 4 p.m. in the Allegheny Room of the Form Show Complex, will examine why long-term transportation funding is critical for the state’s agribusinesses to grow and prosper.

The event features two panels of agriculture, transportation, and public policy leaders and includes an audience Q&A. Topics will include PennDOT funding, the gas tax, tolling, Gov. Corbett’s Transportation Funding Advisory Commission report, safety, rail, and local government funding.

To register for the forum, contact Kim Maiolo at kmaiolo@quantumcomms.com or (717) 213-4955.
