Agribusiness jobs will be Thursday’s topic at meeting of Inland Northwest Partners

The fall meeting of Inland Northwest Partners, being held Thursday in Moscow, will pay full attention to how agribusiness provides numerous options for community job growth.

The event runs 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Moscow Best Western University Inn.

The day’s theme, according to a press release, will be finding ways “to establish and nurture ag-allied niche businesses at the community level, presenting model practices as well as innovative strategies that have proven successful in the region.”

Steve Van Ausdle, Walla Walla Community College president, will deliver the keynote address at noon, highlighting the success of the Southeastern Washington wine industry.
