The workshop will cover the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and how it affects farms, small businesses and individuals. The Affordable Care Act is far-reaching legislation that covers every business, industry and individual. There are no loop-holes that provide any type of exemption. There are many layers to the Affordable Care Act, this will be a broad overview of the basics within the three hour presentation.
