This six-session, discussion-based workshop brings together women in agriculture to learn from experts in production, financial management, human resources, marketing, and the legal field.

Sessions will be held Jan. 28 and 30 and Feb. 4, 6, 11, and 13 in Beatrice. Each night starts with a light meal at 5:30 p.m., followed by presentations and learning activities from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Farm Credit Services of America Sale Barn Conference Room, 4101 N. Sixth St.

Annie’s Project workshops aim to help women become better business partners or sole operators through networking and by managing and organizing critical information. Annie’s Project courses have successfully reached more than 9,000 women in 33 states.

“There's plenty of time for questions, sharing, reacting and connecting with presenters and fellow participants,” said Jessica Jones, extension educator and project organizer. “It's a relaxed, fun and dynamic way to learn, grow and meet other women.”

In addition to Jones, Nebraska Extension educators Austin Duerfeldt and Glennis McClure are organizing the workshops. Sponsors include Farm Credit Services of America, First State Bank, and the Southeast Community College agricultural program. Additional sponsors are welcome.

Space is limited to 20 participants, so early registration is encouraged. The cost for the course is $75 per person, which includes a workbook and support materials for all sessions.

Register for the course.
