You’re invited to take a break for a bit of industry education and a bit of relaxation at this year’s Summer Convention, August 22-23, 2017 at the Hilton Garden Inn @ the Horseshoe Casino in Council Bluffs.
Starting out at 1 PM on Tuesday, August 22, board the bus for a tour of Farm Credit Services in Omaha. While you’re there, Chad Gent, Senior Vice President of Retail Credit will talk about “How the Current Economy is Affecting the Lender and the Farmer.” After that Human Resources will explain what they do to attract new talent to their business. After that we’ll take a stop at a micro-brewery for a quick tour and a drink! Follow that up with the welcome reception that evening where you can enjoy drinks and appetizers and a chance to visit with friends.
Wednesday morning we have Tina Barrett, Executive Director and Agricultural Economist from Nebraska Farm Business Inc. speaking again about “The Farmer and the Current Economy,” yet another point of view on the subject of our economy. Congressman Don Bacon has been invited to join us to give us a Congressional Update. Then we’ll update you as to where we’re going with the visioning sessions we had last summer. Donnie Taylor, VP of Members & Corporate Relations with Agricultural Retailers Association is back to tell you what they think of the New Trump Administration.
Wednesday afternoon grab your golf clubs or your shotgun and head to Bent Tree Golf Club or Pheasant Bonanza! Enjoy a beautiful Summer day out on the golf course or at the sporting clays course. Head back to the Hilton Garden Inn afterwards for awards from both events and a great meal!
