Welcome to Women in Agriculture (WIA)!
The 2014 Nebraska Women in Agriculture Conference will be held Thursday and Friday, February 20 & 21 at the Kearney Holiday Inn Convention Center. We have a jam-packed, fun conference scheduled for this 29th year! Our key-note speaker will be the hilarious Jolene Brown of West Branch, Iowa and even more exciting will be the capstone speaker, our own Nebraska WIA, Jo Bek of Curtis, NE. A celebration of 100 years of University Extension with a special guest and a special desert will be held at noon on Thursday. Over 30 workshops on various risk management topics are planned along with a few ‘fun topics” thrown in. This conference is the longest running women’s conference of its kind in the country. Registration information will be available in late December so stay tuned! We hope you can join us!
