12th Annual Iowa Women in Agriculture Conference

Thursday, August 2, 2018 - 8:00am to 4:45pm

Iowa Women in Agriculture invites you to join us for the 12th annual Conference at the FFA Enrichment Center in Ankeny on August 2.

The 2018 Conference will deliver a full menu of decision-making ingredients for today’s volatile economic climate: the current outlook for ag trade agreements, marketing strategies for low commodity prices, financial risk management tactics, income and estate-tax tips, and the latest on the new farm bill. Our keynote speakers will highlight the unique challenges of women’s roles, offer opportunities to laugh and learn, and to celebrate agriculture.

The one-day Conference runs from 8:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Mary Kay Thatcher, former American Farm Bureau senior director of Congressional relations and current senior lead of Federal Government Relations for Syngenta, will keynote the conference with the latest highlights on the 2018 farm bill. Thatcher also will share her experiences as an ag leader, and encourage women to pursue active roles in agricultural associations and agribusinesses. For more information, click here
