Description

Please join us for the Veterans 4 Ag Summit: Empowering America's veterans to grow America's food, designed to educate and train military veterans for potential careers in the agriculture field.

At the event, veterans will have access to resources and networking designed to help them get started in agriculture. As Arkansas's largest industry, with an economic contribution of $20 billion annually, agriculture has many opportunities for Arkansas's veterans.

Leaders in both agriculture and veteran affairs will be present to participate in two panel discussions: 1. Where do I start? (the first steps in breaking into agriculture) and 2. Opportunities in agriculture (why America's veterans are a great fit for the nation's food and fiber industry).

A showcase of agriculture and veterans organizations will provide attendees with networking opportunities and the chance to speak to industry partners one on one.

Special guest speakers will address attendees during the complimentary breakfast and lunch. Pre-registration begins online 8/26/17. Check-in begins at 8:00 am the day of the event, with breakfast at 9:00 am.
