Early bird deadline extended
Early bird registration has been extended for Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s IGNITE Conference. The conference will take place March 27-28 at the Madison Marriott West. Anyone interested should sign up before March 19 to get the discounted early bird rate.
IGNITE stands for Innovate, Grow, Network, Inform, Train and Engage. This engaging conference will give attendees the opportunity to build leadership skills and strengthen their rural communities.
“The keynote speakers at this year’s IGNITE Conference will be engaging and interactive,” said Senior Director of Member Relations Wendy Kannel.
Keynote speakers include Paul ‘The Ripples Guy’ Wesselmann; Judy Rupnow, senior counselor with MorganMyers; and Tom Thibodeau, Distinguished Professor of Servant Leadership at Viterbo University. Other speakers on the agenda include representatives from American Farm Bureau Federation, Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation and other ag-industry professionals.
The conference offers four tracks: policy, issues and advocacy; governance and organization, building Farm Bureau and communicating for agriculture and Farm Bureau. Attendees will have the option to follow one track through the entire conference or split their time between multiple tracks.
