Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will host the first-ever U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Virtual Office Hours on Twitter at 1:30 p.m. EDT on April 5. Vilsack will answer questions about USDA’s renewable energy programs and will address how USDA is helping build a secure energy future for America. He will be joined by Sarah Bittleman, USDA Senior Advisor on energy policy.

 

USDA Virtual Office Hours, a live question and answer series that will be held monthly, allows stakeholders to directly engage with USDA leadership and subject matter experts through Twitter. Sessions will be focused on a specific mission, issue or program, as aligned with the Department’s strategic goals and based on stakeholder interests.
