2014 Florida Annie's Project Sites

  • Clearwater - The National Farmers Union (NFU) announced the opening of registration for the 2014 NFU Women's Conference, a conference for farm and rural women, based on the well-respected Annie's Project education program. The event, set for Jan. 11-14, 2014, will provide participants with tools and information to confidently manage risks in their farm or ranch operations and develop leadership skills.

    "Family farm operations are more successful when each person in the management team better understands strategic planning, business analysis, family dynamics, and transferring operations from one generation to the next," said NFU President Roger Johnson. "This conference builds on our experience in proving adult education classes specifically designed for women in agriculture."

    A variety of trained instructors will teach family farm finances, budgeting and cash flow, cooperatives, marketing, farm transfer and estate planning, business planning, leadership assessment and skills, generational issues, and action planning. Attendees will learn skills for women leading in agriculture and have peer-to-peer networking opportunities.

    The conference will be held at the Holiday Inn Conference Center in Clearwater, Fla. The $175 registration fee will cover most meals as listed on the tentative agenda and conference materials. Those interested in participating are urged to register early, as capacity is limited. Full payment must accompany registration and be received by Dec.19.
