There is no other event quite like Summer Education Week. Bringing together professionals from across the nation, SEW is the premier educational event for Farm Managers, Rural Appraisers and Agricultural Consultants that you don’t want to miss. Whether you are working towards your accreditation or just looking to learn something new, SEW has a little something for everyone. Check out the Summer Education Week Schedule for the list of classes and seminars offered. 

Networking 

Business cards? Check. Bring more than a few. Catch up with old friends and make new ones in the business during one, or all, of the many networking opportunities at SEW. Students and Young Professionals will have the chance to mingle with each other and seasoned professionals during Career Day and the Young Professionals Network Meeting. 

“For a rural property professional there is no comparison to the atmosphere, education, and industry exposure you receive while attending ASFMRA Summer Education Week. The environment is such that even though most of the time you are essentially sitting next to a competitor, everyone is there for improvement and willing to share ideas, thoughts and experiences that will make each business better.”

-Tim Cobb, Hatley/Cobb Farmland Management
