The early bird registration rate ends Nov. 15 for the 48th annual Country Elevator Conference and Trade Show that takes place Dec. 8-10 in Indianapolis.
This year’s conference program includes new sessions that will challenge attendees to broaden their perspective as they think about the people they lead.
- Diversity and Inclusion: A panel of agribusiness leaders – Karl Binns, national president of Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Science (MANRRS); Megan Weidner, vice president of corporate responsibility and sustainability at Bunge North America; and Dave Hoogmoed, executive vice president of Land O’Lakes and president of Purina Animal Nutrition – will use case studies from their own organizations to exemplify that committing to a diverse and inclusive workplace can help businesses make better decisions, experience lower employee turnover and support long-term growth.
- Mental Health: Michele Payn, principal at Cause Matters Corp., will bring humor, hope and healing to a tough subject and provide a business perspective on why members of the agricultural community need to make mental well-being a high priority.
