Summer Education Week
July 15-25, 2015 | Omaha, NE
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.
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
ASFMRA has the support of sponsors, and in 2014 Bayer CropScience, Crop Production Services, DuPont Pioneer, Farmers National Company, Halderman Farm Management, Hertz Farm Management, Midwest Insurance Corporation, Monsanto, Mycogen, Soy Capital Ag Services, Syngenta, United Soybean Board, Waddell & Reed, Western Agricultural Services and Wyffels Hybrids supported the event by sponsoring lunches, breaks and dinners. Some of the dinner events took us to places in Des Moines that we otherwise would not get to see, like DuPont Pioneer’s headquarters, or Monsanto’s dinner at the World Food Prize Foundation and Syngenta’s barbeque at West End Architectural Salvage.
