Rural Infrastructure is Hot Topic

AEMagripulseHope you are planning on attending the Rural Infrastructure Summit, sponsored by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), in conjunction with Agri-Pulse Communications. The event is being held Monday, August 29 in Ames, Iowa, the day before the 2016 Farm Progress Show kicks off right next door in Boone.

AEM Senior VP Charlie O’Brien says they are working with Agri-Pulse to bring more awareness to the infrastructure issues facing rural America. “We are looking towards the future and don’t see a lot of movement in Washington DC in terms of fixing the infrastructure we’ve got,” said O’Brien. “We want to raise the visibility of how important this issue on infrastructure is and then start to develop the solutions.”
