The nation’s voice for western public lands ranchers will commemorate its 50th anniversary this fall in Park City, Utah during the Public Lands Council (PLC) Annual Meeting, September 27-29, 2018. The meeting, held at the Grand Summit Resort, will bring together cattle and sheep producers, industry partners, government officials, and lawmakers to reflect on the past five decades of the PLC and the strong future ahead for the public lands ranching industry.
“Our annual meeting is always special, but this celebration will allow us to reflect on the tremendous impact of public lands ranching and to recognize the men and women who helped us achieve some of our key milestones,” said Dave Eliason, PLC President and Utah public lands rancher. “It is also about coming together with our neighbors and friends and looking forward to the promising future of our industry.”
In addition to the informative speakers, issues discussions, and policy making that occurs at every PLC meeting, this year’s celebration will include a special Welcome Barbeque, receptions, historical retrospectives, and a 50th Anniversary Banquet at the Red Pine Lodge perched high above the Canyons Village on the ski slopes. Invited guests include leadership of all federal land management agencies, leading scholars from the best land grant universities around the west, and PLC leaders and alumni from throughout the years. The $250 full-registration includes all conference events and meals. Discounted family registrations and one-day registrations are available.
