Dear Friends,

On behalf of the Western Growers Board of Directors, it is my pleasure to invite you to join us at Western Growers Annual Meeting, which will take place October 28 – 31, 2018 at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort and Spa in Palm Desert, CA. For more details about the event, please visit

This year marks our 93rd Annual Meeting, and each year we strive to increase the value of the content and enhance the attendee experience. The venue changes, but the key stakeholders and experts in the industry continue to register year after year because of meeting’s core value. Attendees are encouraged to really think about the biggest challenges facing ag, and how these challenges can be dealt with on a larger scale. Problem solving the issues of today, together, delivers both creative and strategic business solutions. We will continue that tradition this year with lineup of keynote speakers and workshops, with relevant topics for our industry today and tomorrow.

Western Growers holds a position of leadership in the agriculture industry, thanks to our intelligent, inquisitive and innovative members and partners, all dedicated to our common purpose. Each year at the Annual Meeting, we celebrate our incredible members, and together we will commemorate their successes.

We believe there is strength in numbers, and with your help, we will continue to affect positive change. Christine and I look forward to seeing you all in October.

Craig and Christine Reade
