WIA Conference to Offer Continuing Education Credits for Crop Advisor, Veterinary Professionals
The Nebraska Women in Agriculture program will offer continuing education credits for certified crop advisors and veterinary medicine professionals during its annual conference, Thursday and Friday, Feb. 24 and 25 at the Holiday Inn Convention Center, 110 Second Ave., in Kearney.
The two-day conference will feature over 20 workshop sessions where attendees will learn how to better manage risk, improve their farms and ranches and become more successful operators and business partners. Four keynote speakers will address the conference over both days.
Eleven conference workshops have been approved for Certified Crop Advisor Continuing Education Credits, and two workshops have been approved for veterinarians or veterinary technicians licensed in Nebraska to receive credits.
Registration and workshop details are available on the Women in Agriculture site. The registration fee is $85 for a single day or $175 for both days.
“We are excited to be hosting the conference in person this year,” said Jessica Groskopf, director of the Nebraska Women in Agriculture program. “While we are thankful that we could meet online last year, it just can’t replace the face-to-face interaction that makes this conference so great.”
Since 1985, Nebraska Extension’s Women in Agriculture program has sought to provide educational opportunities for all Nebraska women interested in developing agricultural management skills, through unbiased, research-based education. The program provides leadership, learning experiences, support and networking avenues to empower women to compete and survive in this challenging and complex industry.
