AgCareers.com is pleased to announce the line-up of topics selected for the 2011 North American Ag HR Roundtable. In its ninth year, the level of content and educational resource provided to participants has truly increased over the years. This year’s topics will set the stage for what will be a successful event. Mark your calendars and plan to join us on August 1- 3, 2011 in West Lafayette for this year’s Roundtable conference.

We are grateful to have Purdue University and ADM hosting Roundtable guests on the Purdue campus this year. With more than 160 participants last year, we expect for this year’s conference to be even bigger than the last.

The 2011 Roundtable Organizing Committee met in December to help provide input and select hot topics that human resource professionals, managers, university/college staff and associations within the agriculture industry are currently facing. From this brainstorming session, the following topics were outlined. For a synopsis of each topic, please visit the AgCareers.com Roundtable page.
