AFA ALLIANCE YOUNG PROFESSIONAL MEETING TO BE HELD AT AG CONNECT EXPO & SUMMIT 2013
Source: Assn of Equipment Manufacturers news release

Developing strong leaders in the agriculture industry will be critical to meeting the nutritional needs of 9 billion people by 2050. Today's young professionals are receiving support from organizations such as the Agriculture Future of America (AFA) Alliance, a group that will hold a young professionals meeting at AG CONNECT Expo & Summit 2013.

The AFA Alliance serves passionate, driven young professionals in the agriculture and food industries. It promotes environments that enhance their capacity as leaders and promotes personal growth to help them build inter-industry relationships, influence others, be lifelong learners and contribute to a legacy. AFA leader development programs have impacted nearly 7,000 students from more than 115 universities in 42 states, and the AFA Alliance serves the graduates of those programs as well as others working as young professionals in agribusiness.

"AG CONNECT is the gathering place for those committed to agricultural industry trends and best practices. Co-locating the AFA Alliance meeting with AG CONNECT will help pool resources from diverse groups of individuals who can help each other become better leaders in the agricultural industry," said Russ Weathers, president and CEO of AFA.

"AG CONNECT is truly a valuable show for members of the AFA Alliance," stated Show Director Sara Truesdale Mooney. "Members will have the opportunity to see innovative global and regional manufacturers, talk with company executives and product experts and participate in education sessions, networking, and tours while at the 2013 event."

Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) is show owner and producer; it operates all its trade shows for the benefit of participants and has a reputation of delivering measureable value. AEM designed AG CONNECT to be the global trade show in North America for innovative producers and other agribusiness decision makers seeking cutting-edge technology and information.

AG CONNECT Expo & Summit is January 29-31, 2013, with Preview Day on January 29 by special admission, at the Kansas City Convention Center in Kansas City, Missouri. There's no other event with the wide-ranging expertise and long-term implications of AG CONNECT 2013. Attendees can meet face-to-face with Masters & Mavericks of all kinds - from tried-and-true experts to blue-sky innovators - and take away the solid information to help them lead, grow and transform their operation.
