K-State offers professional development conference
“Business professionals attending the upcoming MAB Professional Development Conference will learn about topics affecting the food and agriculture industry in a setting that promotes ‘thinking out of the box’, a free exchange of ideas and learning about trends that may have escaped attention in your day-to-day activities. You will also have the opportunity to renew friendships and make new acquaintances by networking with the other professionals attending the conference,” Hockens said.
The event is open to agribusiness professionals interested in learning more about the current global agriculture industry. Registration fee for the conference is $175 until July 19 ($225 after July 19) and includes meals and materials. Interested individuals can register online at http://www.mab.ksu.edu/ or contact Mary Bowen (firstname.lastname@example.org, 785-532-4435) for more information.
