Women Stepping Forward for Agriculture Conference Coming to Billings

Make plans now to attend the annual Women Stepping Forward for Agriculture Conference at the DoubleTree Hotel in Billings, Mont., Sept. 26-28, 2017.

This year’s conference is packed with speakers that will deliver information on today’s most pressing topics:  farm safety and disaster preparedness, increasing profitability, women in ag business, self-defense, and media outreach.

Featured speaker Bob Budd, executive director of the Wyoming Wildlife and Natural Resource Trust, will discuss mentorship during his talk, Stolon or Seed: How will you Grow?

Sisters on the Fly, the largest outdoor women’s group in the United States, will tell the story of how they got started and how they have grown. They will have a parking lot party following the presentation.

Closing speaker will be Rebecca Undem, a dynamic speaker and author who will show participants how to get their groove back.

Registration for the conference is $70 prior to Sept. 1 and $90 after that date. Registration information and a full agenda can be found on the Women Stepping Forward for Ag website atwomensteppingforward.org. A special room rate is available at the DoubleTree Hotel until Sept. 5.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a silent auction item from their local area. Auction proceeds are used to support future conferences. Exhibit space is also available.
