Monterey Plaza Hotel

A Conference for HR and Safety Professionals in the Agricultural Industry



2020 Forum Information

The Forum was held at the Monterey Plaza Hotel on January 22 – 24, 2020. The event attracted over 350 HR and safety professionals in agribusiness and we celebrated APMA Forum’s 40th Anniversary! We also recognized the 10th HRPA Graduating Class during our 40th Annual Dinner & Dance.

More than 20 sessions on the latest developments addressing HR, employment law, management, and health and safety topics were offered to participants. Distinguished keynote speakers this year were: Congressman Jimmy Panetta, Craig Regelbrugge — Senior Vice President Industry Advocacy & Research at AmericanHort, and Douglas Parker — new Chief of Cal/OSHA. Other noteworthy workshops by special guest speakers included: Lourdes Gonzalez (HR Professional Development), Jonathan Siegal (Aging Workforce), and Cathi Marx (Violence, Active Shooter and Situation Awareness Training). By popular demand, we have offered a half-day panel presentation on H-2A Program and 2020 Employment and Labor Law Update. 

Power Point presentations from this event are now available on APMA website in the Member LogIn section.
