Cultivate Your Future
We have an amazing lineup of speakers for this year, including Dr. Joe Santos, director of the SDSU Ness School of Management and Economics. Here is the full schedule of the event:
We are always striving to add value to our Ag and Agribusiness relationships at First National Bank, and our Cultivate Your Future event is one of the many ways we do so.
We understand that everyone is busy nowadays; however, we believe everyone should be a lifelong learner, and this event provides you with an opportunity to sharpen your skills and be well-informed — giving you a leg up on other area producers.
Farming is a business, after all, and this year’s lineup of speakers will offer expertise on global economics, the industry’s best weather outlook, grain marketing information, and some of the challenges producers will face in the coming years from an ever-changing consumer perception of the way we operate.
We’ve come a long way in our speaker offering to you during our 15 years of hosting this event, and I’m proud to say that this year’s lineup is our best ever. You won’t want to miss this dynamic opportunity!
To register, please RSVP to Abby at (605) 335-2927 or [email protected].
Space is limited, but we invite you to bring a guest. Also, lunch will be provided with a happy hour to follow.
We look forward to seeing you on February 15 at the Hilton Garden Inn South, 5300 South Grand Circle, Sioux Falls.
Brock Associates Winter Seminar
I’d also like to take a moment to recap an opportunity for growth that we offered in early December.
Through our sponsorship of the Brock Associates 2023 marketing meeting at the Sheraton in Sioux Falls, local producers were able to learn about the grain and livestock markets. When one of our Ag Advisory Board members asked me if we’d be interested in this event, we jumped at the opportunity.
We helped to host 85 area producers and had a very informative day. Therefore, we are excited to continue with this partnership — so please watch for information from us on their next event later in 2024!
