National Farmers Union Women's Conference January 17-21, 2015

National Farmers Union (NFU) and Annie's Project will host the 2015 NFU Women’s Conference, a conference for farm and rural women. The national event, set for Jan. 17-21, 2015, in Clearwater, Fla., will provide participants with tools and information to confidently manage business risks on their farm or ranch operations and improve their rural leadership skills. 

“This conference builds on our experience in providing adult education classes specifically designed for women in agriculture,” said NFU President Roger Johnson. “It will also help women find new ways to balance the demands of family, community and professionalism within the agricultural community."

NFU and Annie’s Project are teaming up to provide women across the country with a conference experience that will include brief presentations and extended discussions with women agriculture professionals on topics of importance to their future.

Attendees will learn about decision-making resources and practice management principles through hands-on activities. Topics to be covered include financial ratios, communication styles, estate planning, marketing information, break-even price points, farmland leasing and USDA programs. A strong emphasis will be on learning new skills for women leaders in agriculture and peer-to-peer networking.

The conference will be held at the Holiday Inn Conference Center in Clearwater, Fla. The $175 registration fee will cover most meals and conference materials. Those interested in participating are urged to register early, as capacity is limited. Full payment must accompany registration and be received by Jan. 2, 2015. More information and registration details are available at

The conference is sponsored by Farm Credit, CoBank, the FUI Foundation, NFU Foundation and USDA.
