Sixth annual Iowa women in ag conference

Ankeny, Iowa-“Women Navigating the Future,” the sixth annual conference sponsored by Iowa Women in Ag (IWIA), is scheduled for August 7 at the FFA Enrichment Center in Ankeny. Women with any connection to agriculture are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to gather with other ag women, interact with an array of experts and share life experiences with one another.

The one-day event will feature breakout sessions on topics ranging from beginning marketing and ag finance to estate/succession planning, as well as discussions about emerging technologies and social media. Options will also include the opportunity to tour Pioneer Hi-Bred, or participation in sessions on leadership, a legislative update, food technologies and cover crops.

Lunch is included with registration. Everyone who registers and pays in advance will be in the drawing for a free iPad. All attendees will be eligible for a drawing to win a Nook Color. Those whose names are drawn must be present to win.
