APHIS To Hold Stakeholder Meeting on February 27



Editor's Note:  The following email was sent out to stakeholders announcing the meeting on the 27th of February from Hallie Zimmers, National Stakeholder Liaison.

Today (February 10, 2012), APHIS published a notice in the Federal Register announcing that our Administrator Dr. Parham and our Associate Administrator Kevin Shea will host a stakeholder meeting on Monday, Feb. 27, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in USDA’s Jefferson Auditorium to talk about the Agency’s budget, modernization and process improvement initiatives.  We are also seeking input from stakeholders through a survey that asks a series of open ended questions on partnerships and the Agency’s critical services.  To learn more about the meeting and survey, please read Dr. Parham’s Open Letter to Stakeholders:  http://www.aphis.usda.gov/stakeholders/downloads/public_meeting_letter.pdf
 
 
APHIS’ Stakeholder Information Page includes a link to the survey and the Federal Register Notice.  All meeting details will be posted on this page.  For those unable to attend the meeting in person, we will host a live Webcast in “listen only” mode, which will also be accessible from the stakeholder information page:  http://www.aphis.usda.gov/stakeholders/
