Next Thursday, June 26 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. Eastern Time, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Marketing Service will host a free Webinar titled “An Introduction to the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA).”
In this session, Karla Whalen, Director of the PACA Division, will introduce the PACA and provide practical tips on how PACA can help produce companies resolve everyday business challenges from the interpretation of USDA inspection certificates to protecting their businesses if customers do not pay or file for bankruptcy. Following her presentation, the webinar will conclude with an interactive question and answer session.
Since this is a free Webinar, space is limited and USDA asks that interested parties register to participate via the USDA Webex site.
This webinar is one of many hosted throughout the year by the Agricultural Marketing Service’s Fruit and Vegetable Program. You can check out a library of prior Webinars on the USDA Webinar Archive.
If you have any questions about this webinar series or others, you can e-mail Christopher Purdy at USDA or call him at (202) 720-3209.
