Moved to November 17*

* Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have switched the dates for the Ag Conference and Ag Network so that the conference can still be face to face in November. The network will be webinar-only on June 18, visit the Ag Network page for topics and registration. Ag Conference will be a one-day event with all programming wrapping up on November 17.

The ICBM Ag Conference will focus on keeping ag lenders up to date on their industry and that of their customers. Come hear updates on the current farm financial outlook, grain marketing strategies, and resources available to farm families. 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 July.
