Victor L. Harris, publisher and editor of Minority Landowner Magazine will host the magazine's 6th Anniversary Conference February 23-25 in Raleigh, North Carolina. The conference theme is "Introducing the North Carolina Farm Turnaround Team." The Team consists of resource professionals in the areas of financial management, technical assistance, marketing and succession planning, who will work one-on-one with farm family enterprises to address deficiencies and inefficiencies in their operation, and suggest strategies to turn things around.
An exciting part of the conference will be a legal panel consisting of attorneys in the areas of wills, estate planning, foreclosure and bankruptcy. Volunteer attorneys will also be available to meet one-on-one with farmers to discuss the importance of having a will and estate plan. Many minority farmers do not have a will, and that is one factor that contributes to land loss.
Harris first published Minority Landowner in 2006. The magazine has an audience of minority and limited resource farmers, ranchers and forest landowners across the country, providing information to help them increase productivity of their land management operation, which can increase their profitability, which increases their ability to maintain ownership of their land.
