Creating Solutions Together

Richard Gupton

Sam Pendleton

What a great convention we had in 2021! Thank you to the Kearney Holiday Inn, Meadowlark Hills, Awarii Dunes, and Fort Kearney Sport Shoot Assn for having us at their venues! Thank you also to our presenters – Sam Pendleton from Rantizo, Nick Ward from Ward Laboratories, Richard Gupton from Agricultural Retailers Association, and of course, Congressman Adrian Smith. The Congressman was kind enough to Zoom in since he had to be in Washington, DC for important voting.

We had record attendance which was very exciting since we had to cancel this event last year due to Covid. We had much to celebrate and many people to thank for their outstanding achievements and also extend our appreciation for their service to the industry and the association.

For our Board of Directors, we want to thank outgoing members from the last two years:

2020 Chairman Dean Smith with Dan Stork, this year’s Chairman

2021 Chairman Brad Dillan with new Chairman Dan Stork

Brad Dillan thanks Dean Hartwig and Frank Jasa for serving on the Board of Directors

Doug Karre and Dean Smith also were thanked for their service to the Board of Directors


















And our New Board Members:

Incoming board members Pete Cullan, Mike Killinger and Doug George

Our new Chairman, Dan Stork









We recognized Certified Crop Advisers who have 25 years in the program and special thanks to Bob Kacvinsky for his important service to the CCA Board of Directors. Bob’s contribution helped make the program strong.
