ACE (Agricultural Community Education) is a partnership between the WTA, the Wisconsin Counties Association and the Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin that keeps producers and community leaders engaged in dialogue about important agricultural issues at the local level. Each year, the WTA, partners with the Wisconsin Counties Association and the Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin to sponsor seminars, farm tours and community Twilight Meetings. These events foster an ongoing communication about the current and future role that dairy farms play in our local communities. The 2019 ACE Education Seminar is titled "Leading Wisconsin Forward" and will be held on January 29, 2019, at the Sheraton Hotel in Madison, Wisconsin. This educational seminar will cover topics on transportation, education, environment, and regulations having an impact on the day-to-day lives and routines of public officials.
The On-the-Farm Twilight meetings are scheduled at various farms across the state in August of each year. There is no cost to attend. Attendees are treated to a 60-minute tour of the ho sting dairy, followed by open dialogue and ice cream. For more information on these educational opportunities, please visit the pdpw.org.
