The ALRB (Agricultural Labor Relations Board) Access Refresher 2019 seminar will be held March 21st from 7:00-11:00 am at Hodel’s Country Dining in Bakersfield.

The seminar will feature informative presentations from State Senator and Republican Senate Minority Leader Shannon Grove, labor relations professionals Michael Saqui and Raul Calvo, and Redd Group founder and CEO Jesse Rojas, an expert in political campaigns and innovative labor management techniques.

Senator Grove will update guests on pending legislation – proposals that, if passed, will harm or help agriculture and the workforce.

“Kern County farmers and business owners operate in a challenging environment. There are people serving in positions of leadership on the ALRB and at the State Capitol in Sacramento who have a political perspective but who have no agriculture experience of their own,” said Senator Shannon Grove. "As a public servant I have dedicated my time to cutting red tape and fighting for the Central Valley.”

Guests will also learn how they can proactively deal with the challenging regulatory environment.

"Many of our members attended last year’s seminar and found the information presented invaluable,” said Ariana Joven, Executive Director of the Kern County Farm Bureau.

The cost to attend the seminar is $55 and seating is limited. Anyone wishing to attend, in need of more information or help with registration can contact Jesse Rojas at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call/text (844) 946-7333.
