• I am FarmHer | The Event

March 10, 2017 2 Comments

If you are like me, you love any excuse to get together with your fellow women in agriculture. Whether it be at a trade show, a conference, or maybe just for a quick drink after work, any excuse is a good excuse!

I am excited to bring you another one of those excuses!

FarmHer is proud to present, I am FarmHer, an all-ages event for women in agriculture. Over the past few months, we have been planning this event to bring together women from all walks of life who share a love for agriculture and a desire to collaboratively bring light to how their lifestyles are impacting the world around them. This event will provide attendees with up-to-the-minute information and education on topics vital to women operating within the ag industry. Attendees will include: producers, farmers, ranchers and agribusiness professionals.

After we had received many requests from women wanting to attend our Grow by FarmHer events for young women (ages 15-23), we decided it was time to give you what you were asking for!

While enjoying the company of your fellow FarmHers, you will be immersed in up-to-the minute information and education on topics vital to women operating within the ag industry. Specific topics, presented by industry leaders, will educate you on how to leave or take over your family’s farming legacy, how to feel comfortable and confident working in the agriculture industry as a woman, and why understanding our current political reality is important to all of us in the industry. A line up of workshops will provide hands-on experience and multiple networking opportunities will give you ample time to connect with each other.

 

Where: Sheraton West Des Moines Hotel, West Des Moines, IA 50266

When: Monday, June 26 - Wednesday, June 28

 

Registration opens this Wednesday, March 15th. You will not want to miss it! Tickets are very limited and will go fast. I hope you will join me, FarmHer, and your fellow FarmHers for a great event and a lot of fun.

For more information on the agenda, breakout sessions, and the event in general, visit www.iamfarmher.com. To stay up to date with new speakers added to the agenda, make sure to follow FarmHer on Facebook and Instagram.

If you have specific questions, I would love to answer those for you! Contact me at carly@farmher.com.

See you in June!

I was wandering if this event was only for the ages mentioned in this post or if it was any age woman in agriculture?
