             Private property rights are the foundation of America.  Protecting private property rights is the primary goal of the Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation.  With so many issues surrounding property rights, the Wyoming Farm Bureau Foundation will be hosting a Symposium featuring a Private Property Rights Panel. 

             Beginning at 8:30 a.m. Thursday Nov. 15 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Laramie, the panel will consist of three speakers and will include question and answer time.  The Symposium will conclude at 11 a.m.

             Featured speakers are Alan Romero, Stacia Berry and Olen Snider, Jr.  The panelists will discuss private property rights and the importance of the “bundle of sticks” in regards to property rights. 

              Allan Romero is a University of Wyoming Law Professor and Director of the Rural Law Center.  Romero will talk about the foundation of property rights as they relate to agriculture and what is in the bundle of sticks of property rights.  Fences and the issues of trespass will also be discussed.

             Attorney Stacia Berry joined Hageman & Brighton, P.C. in August and looks forward to working for the agricultural industry.  A former WyFB Young Farmer & Rancher Collegiate Discussion Meet winner, Berry will focus on eminent domain issues.

             Olen Snider, Jr., general counsel for Summit Title Services, will talk about the practical impediments of easements on land titles.  In his current position, Snider focuses primarily on property, business, and finance law.  Among his extensive experience, Snider has served as managing editor of the Land and Water Law Review. 

             The symposium is free and open to the public.  Click here for a promotional flyer.
