Make plans to attend the 2016 Executive Women in Agriculture conference

Few events in agriculture spotlight the critical role women play on farms and in agribusinesses throughout the U.S. Only one gives you access to the experts and networking needed to take your operation to the next level of success: Top Producer’s Executive Women in Agriculture (EWA).

Now in its sixth year, the event will happen Nov. 30 through Dec. 2 in Chicago. Enjoy keynote presentations, breakout sessions and networking opportunities alongside the 250 other farmers and agribusiness professionals who attend annually. 

New this year is an opening networking reception on the evening of Wednesday, Nov. 30. 

Early bird registration is available at a rate of $280 through Nov. 8. After then, the standard rate is $355. Students can register for $195.

Speakers will address topics vital to row-crop, specialty-crop and livestock producers. For instance, Diane Holdorf, chief sustainability officer and vice president with Kellogg Company, will discuss how farmers can capitalize on consumer trends. Mykel Taylor, farm management specialist at Kansas State University, will share tips on how to navigate negotiations with your landlords. Back by popular demand is a live taping of the “U.S. Farm Report” Marketing Roundtable. It will feature Pro Farmer’s Julianne Johnston, Stewart-Peterson’s Naomi Blohm and Citizens Grains’ Angie Maguire. They will discuss markets and provide a 2017 outlook.

Nov. 30-Dec. 2
Palmer House Hilton
Chicago, Ill.
