Interest Grows for the CCA Summer Workshop

The Agribusiness Showcase & Conference has long been about giving its attendees the opportunity to explore the innovative tools they need to grow their business, now and into the future. In 2012 AAI decided to add a Summer Workshop/Field Day to extend the learning opportunities of the Conference into the growing season. This year the CCA Summer Workshop has exceeded expectations and registration is bursting at the seams!

The CCA Summer Workshop has gained immense interest since 2012, registration for the 2015 workshop has increased 32% since 2014. Organizers are excited to have CCA’s learn from our distinguished speaker line-up discussing critical policy issues facing Iowa agriculture and the implications of those policies. All attendees will earn 6 Soil & Water CEU.
