Women in Agriculture Conference

2017 Women in Agriculture Conference – Saturday, November 18.
“We Can Do It” is the theme for the sixth annual Women in Agriculture Conference and will be an engaging, interactive day full of inspiration, learning and networking with other women farmers. The conference is a one-day in-person and remote conference event held simultaneously in 39 locations throughout Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington.
Both of our 2017 speakers, Alexis Taylor, Oregon Department of Ag Director, and Anne Schwartz, Blue Heron Farm owner, will inspire participants to strengthen their leadership skills, become leaders in their communities, become more involved with long-time farmers and guide and mentor new farmers.
At the Vancouver location, we will hear from a panel of 3 local women, farmers and farm supporters, who will talk about their leadership roles, the challenges they have faced and how they have used a mentor to develop their skills.
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and interact. It will be a full day of learning and networking!
Conference registration is $30, but if you register between October 5 and November 5, you will receive our Early Bird Special of $25. The conference registration fee includes the workshop, a light breakfast, lunch and all the conference materials. No refunds after November 12.
