The American Society of Farm Managers & Rural Appraisers’ (ASFMRA) Education Week is an event unlike any other. From July 17-24 in La Vista, Nebraska 245 participants from 35 different states came together to participate in seminars, network with other industry professionals, and learn about the latest happenings of the agriculture industry. ASFMRA’s Education Week provides rural professionals with access to “core” courses required in the appraisal and farm management fields, as well as new seminars relating specifically to the unique needs of those in the agriculture sector.

“Along with providing core courses that young appraisers, farm managers, and agricultural consultants need to progress in their careers, the ASFMRA’s Education Week debuts new seminars that focus on the latest trends and issues impacting rural professionals today,” said Alex Clark, ASFMRA Membership Marketing and Communications Director, “The setting allows for collaboration, camaraderie and, most importantly, development that goes beyond CE credits hours by promoting advancement and highlighting opportunity.” Seminar topics at this year’s event included a focus on cannabis, drainage tiles, management strategies for enhancing ROI, and practical examples for using the newest appraisal.

As an ASFMRA Preferred Partner, LandValue Solutions was proud to attend Education Week, sponsor a luncheon and give a presentation, and network with the rural professionals in attendance. Vendors who attend the ASFMRA Education Week benefit from exposure to many rural professionals who may be more willing to tackle and promote to their organizations the latest tools and services offered throughout their respective industries- and LandValue Solutions was no exception.

“Education Week provides a great opportunity to meet members and learn firsthand what the current challenges are in each industry. I personally enjoyed being able to showcase how LandValue Solutions can help face those challenges in a fun, professional, learning environment,” said Austin O’Neill, LandValue Solutions Sales, and Marketing Director.

While the summer months tend to be some of the busiest, attending ASFMRA’s Education Week is a must-do for all professionals in the industry seeking to increase their knowledge, network, and bandwidth. LandValue Solutions is proud to be an ASFMRA Preferred Partner and Education Week Platinum Sponsor, we hope to see you at next year’s event!
