Haven’t made up your mind about attending? Need help convincing your manager why it is important that you attend?


Following are 10 reasons why every agribusiness human resource professional, business leader, university/college career services staff and association representative should attend:


  1. Valuable insights on work, education and development from agricultural HR and collegiate experts, along with renowned speakers, including a New York Times bestselling author, a productivity expert, a compensation consultant, and an employment lawyer.

  2. Gen Z, Mergers, University Recruiting, Government & HR, Innovation in the Workplace, and more hot topics are on the agenda. Topics were suggested by past participants and requested specifically by a committee of industry HR leaders and university representatives on the organizing committee.

  3. Create your own customized learning experience by choosing from concurrent sessions related to Recruitment, HR Management, Professional Development, HR Practices, Workplace Development and University-focused.

  4. Earn 8.75 (general) recertification credit hours toward a PHR™, PHR®, PHRca®, SPHR®, GPHR®, PHRi™, SPHRi™ through the HR Certification Institute® (HRCI®).


  1. Gain knowledge outside of your industry sector. Not all HR professionals have an ag background, so this event is helpful to gain insight into the industry as a whole.

  2. Efficient mode for accomplishing college recruiting initiatives. The roundtable is a cost-effective way for industry and college/university professionals to interact, establishing a connection for recruitment programs, internships, and talent development. Check out who’s already registered.
