One of the most enjoyable parts of my job is the Ag & Food HR Roundtable. From the gathering of ideas and input of our Organizing Committee and then molding that into an agenda that will intrigue and provide solutions to the challenges our audience faces. To the meeting new people and making valuable connections for myself but also among the participants. Each step along the way is rewarding, knowing that this event provides a unique opportunity for human resource and university/college career services professionals within agriculture and food found nowhere else.
It is hard to believe that this will be the Roundtable’s fifteenth year. Yes, I know this ages me, but I’m lucky enough to say I’ve been a part of all but the first one! Plan to join us for a fun celebration of 15 years of success, August 1 – 3 in Kansas City, MO. Our Organizing Committee, yet again, has developed a great agenda and we have plenty of fun networking opportunities – can I say, Boulevard Brewery!!!
This year’s keynote is quite fitting to mark this special anniversary. The session is about innovation in the workplace and pitching your ideas. Change is inevitable and innovation is a must. As I reflect on the Roundtable and the changes that we’ve made over the years, I can’t help getting excited about the future of the event and what innovation and creativity will bring in the next 15 years. Here is a sneak peek at our special guest and this year’s keynote, Diana Kander.
In addition to Diana, we have a great line-up of sessions and speakers for this year’s event. Topics like Generation Z; The Government’s Influence on Human Resources; Thinking Legal When it Comes to University Recruiting; Productivity Accelerators; Mental Illness in the Workplace, and many more.
We look forward to seeing you at the Roundtable and encourage you to get your registration in soon. Several of the networking opportunities have limits and registration deadlines. You won’t want to miss out! Early-bird registration ends June 23rd.
A big thank you to this year’s sponsors. Your support helps to make this event possible!
