ATHENS, GA, May 5, 2020 — The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Georgia will host two meetings of the State Technical Committee this month via teleconference on May 14 and 21, both from 9:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. Coordinates for the teleconferences will be provided to those who pre-register for the meeting by emailing Janice.Lester@usda.gov by close of business two days before each meeting date.

The state technical committee meeting allows Georgia citizens and representatives of organizations and agencies the opportunity to provide natural resource-based input that will guide the delivery of NRCS programs within the state. During the meeting, NRCS and Farm Service Agency (FSA) staff will provide updates on Farm Bill programs, and participants will have opportunities to offer suggestions regarding future implementation of programs.
