Stephanie Herseth Sandlin

Former South Dakota Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin will speak during the inaugural gathering of the Women's Farm and Forestry Alliance on March 11-12 at the Saint Paul Hotel in St. Paul, Minn.

Herseth Sandlin was a member of the board of incorporators that helped to shape the vision for the Women's Farm and Forestry Alliance.

She will be on a panel with Gary Matteson, Farm Credit's vice president for young, beginning, small farmer programs and outreach, who has also been involved from the beginning, and they will be sharing their "founders' vision" for the group.

The mission of the Women's Farm and Forestry Alliance is to build strong women leaders, strong networks, and an even stronger agriculture and forestry sector by ensuring that women have access to the highest level of financial and business management training along with an embedded leadership training program.
