At the February 21 kick-off meeting, a three-page, in-depth questionnaire was distributed to all Task Force members, seeking their organizations' perspectives on the importance of various challenges, opportunities and major issues facing Kentucky Agriculture. A Summary as well as numerical results of the tabulated questionnaire results were provided to Task Force members at their second meeting (May 30). Task Force members then had an opportunity to vote on a wide range of "themes" emerging from the questionnaire responses. Voting was conducted anonymously using an Electronic Response System. Seven Committees then were established to begin development of preliminary Goals, Actions and Benchmarks for the top-ranked themes.
