2018 Leadership Summit


Leadership Summit is the annual event that brings together all processor members of the association for a collaborative summit that addresses hot topics, food safety, policy updates and legislative impacts on our industry. The main focus of this event is to highlight the importance of our relationships and the industry knowledge sharing that makes us one of the top three industries in the states.

Why Attend?

Strong Networking

Leaders in marketing, idea building, food safety and future messaging will be at Leadership Summit. You should be too! Join Food Northwest as we all work together with key speakers in the industry to discuss ideas on Sanitary Design, Product Recall, Security and Legislature.

Thursday Night

We’re journeying to the Mighty Mississippi for a River Boat Casino night highlighting our sponsors! To add to the pool – a fundraiser for our Scholarship Fund. Support the ERI and the sponsors as you compete in Texas Hold ‘em, black jack and Roulette. Script will be provided and if you run out – well, you can always see the ERI banker for more…

Our Friday Night

We theme it for a reason! This year, bring your taffeta, big hair, sequins and neon colors. Friday night is prom night in 1985! The best music, food you love and the crowning of a king and queen. Make sure you plan your outfit accordingly – you could be the ruler of the night!

Golf at Coeur d’Alene

Floating green anyone? Make sure you secure your spot in this tournament. The only floating green west of the Mississippi and a beautiful course on top of it all!

Kayaking Lake Coeur d'Alene

The perfect outing to complement a visit to Coeur d’Alene, these lake kayaking trips take you to a peaceful and lovely nature preserve in Cougar Bay at the northwest corner of Lake Coeur d’Alene and includes a short hike if time allows.

Wine Tour
