Feb '08
Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) and newly confirmed Secretary of Agriculture Ed Schafer will address the National Cotton Council's (NCC) 70th Annual Meeting, set for February 7-11, at The Peabody Hotel, site of the NCC's organizational meeting in November 1938.

The meeting is expected to attract more than 800 U.S. cotton industry leaders and industry stakeholders from the 17-state Cotton Belt. NCC delegates will review and adopt specific resolutions to guide the NCC's 2008 programs and activities in six key program areas: farm and economic policy; international trade; public relations and international market development; research and education; packaging and distribution; and health, safety and the environment.

Senator Lincoln, one of the top ranking Democrats on the Senate Agriculture, Nutrition & Forestry Committee, will address the meeting's general session on February 11. She also chairs that panel's Production, Income Protection and Price Support Subcommittee.

Among her other assignments are service on the Finance and Energy & Natural Resource committees and as Democratic Caucus Chair of Rural Outreach – where she helps frame the majority party's initiatives to revitalize rural America, including new investments in biofuels development, farm programs and education.

Joining Senator Lincoln on the February 11 session will be outgoing NCC Chairman John Pucheu, a California cotton producer, who will address the state of the U.S. cotton industry, including its upcoming challenges. In addition, Gloria Borger, senior political analyst for CNN, will provide insight on the 2008 Presidential race.
