Kelseyville, Calif. October 24, 2017 – The Lake County Winegrape Commission is presenting a seminar for Spanish-speaking supervisors and managers working in the agriculture industry. The seminar takes place November 6 and 7, 2017 at The Lodge at Blue Lakes in Upper Lake, California.

The purpose of the two-day seminar, which is conducted in Spanish and offered every other year, is to provide up-to-date information on topics that are especially pertinent to ag managers in the region. The long-term goal of this and similar seminars presented by the Commission is to cultivate a professional workforce in the local ag industry.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Understanding the Current Labor Force
  • Wage and Hour Compliance
  • Favoritism
  • Sexual Harassment Prevention
  • Communication Skills & Conflict Management

These topics are considered especially relevant today and reflect Lake County Winegrape Growers’ commitment to the development of the region’s agriculture employees. While the seminar is aimed primarily at vineyard managers, it is open to any field supervisor in the ag industry.
