June 25 is the end of early registration for the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers (ASFMRA) Summer Education Week 2012, which will be held July 15 to 20 in Des Moines, Iowa.

Attendees can complete education courses and participate in seminars throughout the week, all of which will bring ASFMRA members up to date with the most current education classes and general information for conducting business. Some of the education and seminar offerings are Ag Lands Management, Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3; Income Approach for General Appraisers (A303); Succession and Estate Planning; Risk Management, Market Outlook and Insurance; Emerging Technologies and Issues; and Appraising Natural resources. There are charges to participate in the education sessions with cost based on member or non-member status.

The Education Week has a good amount of emphasis on young professionals and students. There are special sessions for both education and networking on the program for these groups. The week even includes time for employers to interview students to be hired into appraisal or land management.

Various sponsored events and special meals will be held during the week as part of general registration.   

Official hotel of Education Week is the Embassy Suites Hotel Des Moines Downtown on Locust Street. The hotel block of rooms for attendees of the ASFMRA event also is being released June 25. The room rate until June 25 is $125 for a single or double room.  The hotel telephone number is (515) 244-1700.
