The entry list has been oversubscribed based on attendance.  It is fully booked .  .  Do you know any one who signed to go and now does not want to attend the Big Agriculture  panel at Risk Metrics.?  There is a long waiting list for the event at this point.

HI Sonia! 

I remember you, of course. I hope this email find you well.  
I will not be at the event tomorrow night, because I'm taking a class on Tuesday nights. 
If you're going though, I wonder if you would be willing to present/report on some of the activities and also share some of your reflections of the event for a future meetup? Perhaps there are others from the meetup list who will be attending as well, and you can actually meet up at the event. :)

Anyone else on this list attending? Any takers for reporting back?

The sustainability of large-scale agriculture is increasingly being called into question. Food manufacturers and agribusinesses catering to global food markets are being challenged by the rising demand for sustainably grown food. What material impact will this have for the food sector?

The discussion will explore what companies are doing to drive profitability while navigating the challenges of agricultural sustainability.
