Panel Discussions – Reflections of the past and preparing for our Future  – We will bring experienced managers, new managers, and board members to an in-depth discussion group pertaining to our industry.  It’s true, that often, experience is the best teacher.  We also know aspirations can be squashed and visions lost because of our fears of uncertainty.  In the farm mutual industry, it is imperative to bring fresh ideas to the table to find the best approach to achieving our fullest potential.  During this segment, we will discuss effective ways to blend the experience of the past and visions of the future for the benefit of our industry. We will be breaking this into two sessions – focusing on Manager’s and then Board Members, then bringing them back together for a final session.

We would love to have you submit questions for the panel ahead of time—please include them below or email
