The ethanol industry will help Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack kick off his second term in the Obama administration when he visits the 18th Annual National Ethanol Conference of the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) next month in Las Vegas. Vilsack was also the keynote speaker at the 2012 ethanol conference.
“We congratulate Secretary Vilsack as he begins his second term. He is a well-spoken, highly credible voice for the Obama Administration and for American renewable fuels. As only a former Governor and current Secretary could do, he speaks eloquently about the importance of energy independence from foreign oil, investment in the next generation of biofuels, and the powerful role the ethanol industry plays in rural economic development. We are honored to host him at the National Ethanol Conference,” said Bob Dinneen, RFA President and CEO.
The National Ethanol Conference will be held February 5-7 in Las Vegas and a $100 discount on early registration is still available until January 19.
