Soy Leaders Gain Knowledge to Promote Industry

Soybean Leadership College attendees discuss answers to the roles & responsibilities match game during a breakout session on ag leadership.

Agricultural industry leaders met in St. Charles, Mo. this week, for a two-day training to effectively promote the soybean industry, communicate key agricultural messages and work to expand U.S. soybean market opportunities domestically and internationally, while networking with growers from across the country. More than 100 participants attended this year’s conference.

The 2019 program included sessions such as “Using Your Finances to Create a Competitive Advantage,” “The Beltway Impact:  Who is in Charge? What’s the Economic Impact” and “Soybean Family Pannel – Grower Leaders Answer Your Questions.”  The program also featured keynotes from Steve Cortes, CNN Contributor, and Jack McCall.
