June 18-19

The ICBM Ag Conference is two days of education focused on keeping ag lenders up to date on their industry and that of their customers.

The Ag Conference offers a great opportunity for agricultural lenders and bank managers to hear the latest update on the current farm financial outlook, grain marketing strategies, resources available to farm families, as well as to get an overview from a bank examiner’s perspective. It will also be an opportunity to hear from some successful and innovative ag business leaders on what opportunities and challenges they see in the next few years for the agriculture industry. There will be ample time for networking and interaction with other ag lending professionals. 

Registration opens in April.
