Why Become a Member / Sponsor in 2022?

 

This past year Poultry Industry Council (PIC) and the poultry industry faced an unprecedented situation that continues to affect us all, causing us to retool and rethink how we do business.  

Ours is a sector that thrives on new information and knowledge, and PIC continues to be proactive in supporting our members, partners, and the industry in giving access to important resources and staying connected through virtual events during these challenging times.

There are many benefits to belonging to PIC. Membership is a great way to have your voice heard, and be part of an organization that unites and provides a forum for the poultry industry. Membership allows you to be among those who facilitate and drive positive change within the poultry sector.
