Please join us for a free webinar hosted by the ASFMRA and ASAC covering a brief overview on macroeconomics with a focus on Ag centric subsectors.

The economic landscape (both Ag and Non-Ag) before us is fraught with uncertainty. The Fed performs an admirable job of keeping a finger on the pulse of the Ag Economy and the US Economy at large.  Plan to join in and learn more about vital and critical economic topics - the knowledge gained should be valuable in your work with clients.
