The NRCS – MALT Partnership Meeting will take place on Wednesday, May 8, starting at 1:00 PM, in the NRCS State Office in Bozeman. The meeting is in a second floor conference room and does have teleconference capability, so folks wanting to join the meeting via teleconference should contact ALE Program Coordinator Tom Mallon at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tom and the NRCS have shared the May 8 partnership meeting agenda with the MALT membership, the meeting has been discussed during a NRCS – MALT conference call, MALT board of directors conference call, and a MALT Farm Bill Team conference call, so things should be good to go on May 8. This will be Tom Mallon and NRCS State Conservationist Tom Watson’s first official NRCS – MALT Partnership Meeting and the agenda offers a wide range of important NRCS and land trust topics: Closing 2014 Farm Bill ALE projects, 2018 Farm Bill implementation, 2019 ALE Program allocation and funding levels, Regional Conservation Partnership Program efforts in Montana, ongoing communications and focus within the NRCS and land trusts, and more. Feel free to get in touch with Tom Mallon if you have questions about the meeting, agenda or logistics.
