ProGreen EXPO

Wednesday, Feb. 14 – Colorado is our Valentine!  Craig Regelbrugge is an invited presenter at the Progreen show, sponsored in part by our grassroots partner, the Colorado Nursery and Greenhouse Association.  Craig is providing updates on key advocacy issues, including labor, plant health, health care, and more.  He’ll also provide updates from our own Tal Coley, on trucking and tax issues.  

Mexico City

Thursday, Feb. 15 — Craig will be in Mexico City, participating in the executive committee meeting of the North American Plant Protection Organization (NAPPO).  NAPPO works to harmonize efforts by Canada, the US, and Mexico to prevent and respond to plant pest threats, and to foster safe trade in the region. Craig sits at the table as the representative of the U.S. agricultural and horticultural industries.

Friday, Feb. 16 — While in Mexico City, Craig has scheduled two other important meetings. One is with Undersecretary Carlos Sada, whose position is essentially Undersecretary of State for North America. The other is with Karla Gisela Quintero, who heads up the Servicio Nacional de Empleo (National Employment Service). This is the government agency that provides worker recruitment for the Canadian guest worker program.  Both meetings will focus on identifying opportunities for collaboration in the mutual interest of our two nations.
