The 2012 National Pork Industry Forum is set for March 1-3 at the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center, Denver. Pork Forum involves the separate annual meetings of the National Pork Producers Council and the National Pork Board. 

The 15 producers who serve as members of the National Pork Board use the meeting to discuss ideas, needs and program direction from the Pork Act Delegate body. The theme for NPB’s meeting this year is “America’s Pork Producers: Building A Better Tomorrow.”

The delegates always make their views known on the important issues facing pork producers and the pork industry, and on how they would like to see the National Pork Checkoff dollars invested.

Interested parties should refer to the National Pork Board General Schedule of Events posted on pork.org.

NPPC and its producer delegates will meet during those same days in a separate meeting. NPPC receives only voluntary membership funds and is charged with addressing legislative, regulatory and public policy issues facing U.S. pork producers. NPPC delegates will discuss resolutions handed down through a state association process.
