MADISON

Keynote presentations, multiple breakout sessions, entertainment, and optional activities are on the agenda for the 2014 Wisconsin Ag Women's Summit. It will be held on Friday and Saturday, March 14-15, at the Madison Marriott West.

Following the early morning registration on March 14, small business consultant and women's leadership development specialist Chariti Gent of Madison will give a keynote welcome at 10 a.m. titled "Bold Action: Charting the Course in Choppy Waters."

Three breakout sessions will be offered during the afternoon. Choices for the first session are the importance of women in the leadership of cooperatives, a review of current agriculture policy, planning and financing a value-added agriculture business, and the fitting of four generations into a workplace or onto the farm.

The afternoon's second breakout will offer attendees choices of the regulatory updates for agribusinesses, tales and lessons from the veterinary field (presenter is Sheila McGuirk), a 101 course on the Extension Service, and how to make better use of one's money.

For the day's third breakout session, the four topics will be a primer on the Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest social media, tips on how to use mobile technology to make farm life easier, advice on how to promote agriculture literacy via visits to school classes, and a virtual tour of "Great Wisconsin "Stay"-cation choices.

A social hour, banquet, a program honoring the 2014 AgVocate of the Year, and a live improvisation comedy show by the Comedy City troupe will complete the opening day's activities.

For early risers on Saturday, March 15, there will be optional choices for zumba or a boot camp workouts starting at 6:30 a.m. and a chance to meet with the AgVocate of the Year at 8 a.m.

The final breakout session of the summit will include choices of a panel discussion on Facebook pages featuring "Dairy Carrie" blogger Carrie Mess and Daphne Holterman of Rosy Lane Holsteins, a review of the challenges and resources facing farmers for mental health services in rural areas, protecting one's personal information when engaged in online communication, and a recounting of how one family was able to save $40,000 in less than one year with the help of coupon use and meal planning.

Following a mid-morning brunch, the summit will wind up with a concluding keynote address by Chariti Gent. The title of her presentation will be "I'm REALLY Gonna Do it This Time: A Simple Lesson System for Turning Those Good Ideas into Action."

With a registration deadline of Friday, March 7, the fee for the conference is $140 per person. Registration and online payment is available through the wfbf.com/programevents/event-registration website.

Payment can also be made via a check payable to the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation and sent to WI Farm Bureau/Women's Summit, P.O. Box 5550, Madison, WI. 53705. Other cooperating sponsors of the summit are Badgerland Financial and the University of Wisconsin Extension Service.

Hotel reservations can be made at the Marriott West by calling 1-888-745-3032 or at another place chosen by the attendee.
