OPENING SESSION

Sunday February 4, 2007 3:30 to 5:00 PM – Opening Program West Ballroom – Mobile Convention Center

Introduction Vance Watson, President of SAAS Mississippi State University

Program Topic: Agricultural Labor and U.S. Immigration Policy

The Southern Agricultural Economics Association (SAEA) will be hosting the Opening Session of the 2007 SAAS Annual Meeting. The theme for the Opening Session will be Agricultural Labor and U.S. Immigration Policy. Nationally recognized scholars will address the dynamics of agricultural labor markets, employment trends of agricultural workers, and proposed changes to U.S. immigration policy. The presentations will offer insights into how revised federal policies on immigration likely will affect workers and farmers across the southern United States, particularly those individuals and companies in the horticultural and tree crop industries.
