We are pleased to organize and support dozens of events that advance organic agriculture and trade throughout the year. Some of these are signature OTA events hosted for members, while others are regional, national, or international conferences where OTA staff are featured keynotes and panelists. Whether we’re bringing the latest news and trends about the organic industry to diverse audiences, sponsoring business networking gatherings, or hosting listening sessions to gather feedback from the sector, you can count on OTA to be part of the action.

Montana Organic Association Annual Conference

Montana Organic Association Annual Conference

Wednesday, December 4, 2019 - 8:00am to Saturday, December 7, 2019 - 5:00pm

The Montana Organic Association's Annual Conference will be taking place December 4-7, 2019 in Bozeman, MT. 

The Montana Organic Association (MOA) brings together people, businesses, organizations, and agencies who are working to develop Montana's organic industry. MOA is proud of its legacy that has led Montana to be a national leader in organic production. But MOA is more than organic production; it also serves to educate about organic products including food, fiber, and non-food items like personal care items and household supplies, and ways to limit the use of chemicals in everyday life. MOA also advocates for policies that protect the environment, promote healthy living, and support individuals, farms and businesses who are actively engaged in developing sustainable businesses and communities. MOA accomplishes this through hosting events, serving as an educational resource, providing network opportunities, and communications.

The Montana Organic Association (MOA) is a member of the Organic Trade Association's Farmers Advisory Council. Organic Trade Association's Farm Policy Director, Johanna Mirenda, will be attending the Annual Conference. For more information, contact Johanna Mirenda
