FFA'S NEW CENTURY FARMER TO CO-LOCATE ALUMNI CONFERENCE AT AG CONNECT
Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) reports:

Today, a young generation of farmers and ranchers is receiving encouragement and help to succeed from organizations such as New Century Farmer, a group that will hold an alumni conference at AG CONNECT Expo & Summit 2013 in Kansas City, Missouri.

AG CONNECT Expo & Summit 2013 offers classes, roundtable sessions and networking opportunities to help young professionals explore their interests.

Run by the National FFA Organization, New Century Farmer is a leadership program for college students pursuing careers in production agriculture. New Century Farmer helps students develop their careers in production agriculture by providing them with an opportunity to advance their entrepreneurial leadership, practical knowledge, visioning, global perspective and continuous personal growth. The Alumni Conference serves the graduates of those programs - the next generation of production agriculture.

"With the age of the average American farmer steadily climbing, we need to make sure the next generation of producers are prepared to take on all of the challenges that come with farming," said Christine White, director, educational programs division at the National FFA Organization.

"Classes, roundtable sessions and networking opportunities offered at AG CONNECT will give our alumni the best tools from the brightest minds in agriculture."

"AG CONNECT Expo & Summit is an ideal venue for young professionals to learn about global technological advances in production agriculture," said Sara Truesdale Mooney, show director. "We believe the show will provide unparalleled networking opportunities for New Century Farmer alumni to garner the latest knowledge and improve their business practices."
