Farm Credit East to Host Webinar on the Affordable Care Act


Northeast agricultural producers are invited to participate in a free webinar on the Affordable Care Act and its impact on farm businesses. It will be hosted by Farm Credit East on Tuesday, December 17, at 10 a.m.

The Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, is the most comprehensive overhaul of our health care system in a generation. New provisions of the law will be taking effect in 2014 and 2015. Although the employer mandate has been put off until 2015, there are still things you need to know for this year.

"This webinar is part of our ongoing Knowledge Exchange initiatives to provide information on emerging issues facing Northeast agriculture, forest products and commercial fishing industries," said Bill Lipinski, CEO of Farm Credit East. 
Robert Noonan, labor law attorney, will present this webinar. Noonan will cover what farm businesses need to know in order to comply with this law.

Join Farm Credit East on Tuesday, December 17, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. to learn more about how the Affordable Care Act will affect your farm business and what you need to know to comply. It is free to participate. Visit for registration information.
