This November, the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers (ASFMRA) will examine the impact of new technologies on rural land management and valuation at its 2019 Annual Conference in Louisville, Kentucky.
Celebrating its 90th anniversary, the ASFMRA will welcome anyone involved with rural property and assets—those who participate in managing, consulting, valuing and brokering on behalf of clients and landowners throughout the U.S.—for three days of education and networking.
Seminars delivered by ag tech innovators and ag policy insiders will dive deep into topics including the impact of artificial intelligence and blockchain on valuation and agriculture; how climate change might impact ag; where the U.S. ag economy is headed given current conditions; and how business leaders can best future-proof their companies in times of uncertainty. The ASFMRA will also be offering the new 2020-21 7-Hour USPAP course for any appraisal professional and providing a day-long “rapid fire” rural appraisal session that features case studies from industry experts.
What makes the ASFMRA Annual Conference most valuable, however, are the chances to interact with key management and appraisal decision-makers in a low-key setting. Networking events include a tour through a tobacco farm and saddlebred horse-breeding and training facility and a journey along the legendary Kentucky Bourbon Trail.
