Annual Women in Ag registration open

 

October 17, 2018



“Pump Up Your Financial Fitness” is the theme for the seventh annual Women in Agriculture Conference. Organizers say this one-day conference will be engaging, interactive, full of inspiration, learning and networking with other women farmers. The conference is held simultaneously in 34 locations throughout Washington, Alaska, Idaho, Montana, and Oregon.

Featured speakers Robin Reid and LaVell Winsor will present “How Does Your Cash Flow.” Together they will help attendees build and improve their annual cash flow system. Learn strategies to start projections for the coming year, monitor cash flow against actual income, and manage family living expenses. In addition, Sarah Beth Aubrey’s keynote, “Attention Women: You are a Valuable Part of Agriculture” will include ways to prioritize and do the most important things first. Hear fresh facts from research that prove the distinct value women bring to the farm. Her ideas for encouraging women to farm and some easy ways to develop the women you employ will be enlightening. This is the right time for women to celebrate their contribution to agriculture and be recognized for their unique impact.

Each event location will have a panel of local women farmers who will talk about how they balance their lives, with their top tips for handling finances and their personal lives.

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and interact. It will be a full day of learning and networking. This conference is designed for all women farmers and anyone who works with women farmers. If you have been farming for years, are a new and aspiring farmer, a banker, lender, or anyone in the agricultural industry, this conference will help. It is also open to all FFA and 4-H members at a discounted rate; some scholarships are still available.

Registrations fees are: $30 if you register before Oct. 19; $35 if you register between Oct. 20 and Oct. 26. Your registration fee includes a light breakfast, lunch and all the conference materials, along with a great bag to take everything home.

The Washington location is in White Salmon at Pioneer Center 501 NE Washington St.
