The Workshop Tour...

Mar 27, 2010
The Legacy Project Workshops are in full swing, and what a week it was! We were in three states over as many days. Starting in Madison, WI, we traveled to Owatonna, MN and then Sioux Falls, SD. Though the content of each presentation is similar, the outcome can vary greatly as the event takes on a life of its own. 
This first round of workshops was a great experience. Participants demonstrated a desire to learn. They were engaged in the process, took part in the exercises and we all benefited from the dialogue. 

Please consider participating in future workshops… You’ll learn:
  1. Succession planning is necessary to create a lasting legacy. With the right information and appropriate tools it will be a very gratifying process, and we can help.
  2. If you have questions or concerns regarding your own situation---how succession may help you, the family and your operation. The Legacy Workshop is an excellent opportunity to address your most pressing issues.
  3. These workshops will help you to commit to action with the knowledge that you’re not going-it-alone. The Farm Journal Legacy Project is designed to create a community of family farm owners’ intent on cultivating multigenerational success. 
  4. The workshop agenda will cover the first steps in the succession planning process. We’ll talk about the family meeting, and introduce tools that will help you achieve results

Please watch for additional information soon about the Legacy Project Workshops. The next round is scheduled for the week of July 19th, and we’ll see participants in Lincoln NE, Des Moines IA and Champaign IL.
