It's not too late to register for the 2011 Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) Annual Conference & Expo, Nov. 29 - Dec. 1, in Boca Raton, Florida. Advance registration ends this Friday, Nov. 18. After Friday, attendees must register at the conference.
The theme for this year's conference is Growing a Sustainable Business: What Your Customers, Consumers and the Government Want from Ag Retailers. The topic of Sustainability is rapidly gaining attention across America from both coasts and will likely have a dramatic impact on the businesses of ag retailers and their customers. Consumer demands and regulatory pressures are some of the drivers that are creating the need for all ag retailers and farmers to evaluate their current production methods and identify ways to be more sustainable. At the ARA Conference, our speakers will examine the social, economic and environmental pillars of a sustainable operation.
