The fourth annual Women in Agriculture Conference will take place in Washington on March 28.

WASHINGTON, Iowa – “Setting the Table for Success” is the theme for the fourth annual Women in Agriculture Conference, to be held at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Washington on March 28.

The event is being hosted by the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Washington County office, along with the Washington County Women in Agriculture Advisory Board.

The goal of this year’s conference is to show women of all ages how they can set their table for success in agriculture by surrounding themselves with the right people and resources to make informed decisions.

The conference will feature four speakers, Scott Siepker, Iowa Nice Guy; Elaine Kub, grain market economist; Delaney Howell, host of Iowa Public Television’s “Market to Market,” and Kay Frances, a humorous and motivational speaker.

Siepker will kick off the conference with a little bit of humor, sharing his insights on how “Setting the Table for Success” starts with who should be around the table as well as how we can steal from the best and tell our story.

Kub and Howell will follow, expanding on how women can set their own table for success. Kub will examine the makeup and motivations of the grain market’s most influential players, as well as pinpoint some price opportunities for the grain markets in 2020. Howell will expand on this topic and delve into the various aspects impacting the business of agriculture.

Finally, while agriculture and “Setting the Table for Success” may be stressful at times, the final speaker, Frances, will help attendees to see the “Funny Thing about Stress.” She’ll share some pointers about how to better manage stress, so it doesn’t manage us.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. The conference will begin at 9 a.m. and conclude around 2:30 p.m. with networking and socializing until 3 p.m., along with a wine tasting. Attendees must be 21 or older for the wine tasting.

The cost to attend the conference is $25, or $15 for students. A light breakfast and lunch will be included.

Pre-register by calling the ISU Extension and Outreach Washington County office at 319-653-4811, or online at https://tinyurl.com/womeninagconf2020. The pre-registration deadline is March 17. Late registrations and walk-in registrations will be accepted based on availability.

The conference is being made possible in large part thanks to Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, the Azariah and Martha Foster Heritage Endowment, Hills Bank, and other local sponsors.
