Oklahoma Women in Agriculture and Small Business Conference set for Aug. 8-9
Oklahoma's Statewide Women in Agriculture and Small Business Conference will take place Aug. 8-9 at the Moore-Norman Technology Center.


"The focus of the two-day conference is to assist women and producers to successfully manage risk for their agricultural enterprises or small businesses," said Damona Doye, Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension farm management specialist.


Cost is $50 per participant if registering by Aug. 1 and $60 thereafter. Registration includes two breakfasts, two lunches, all refreshment breaks, conference materials, post-conference training and a Taste of Oklahoma reception on Thursday evening, Aug. 8.


Registration forms and additional information are available at www.OKWomeninAgandSmallBusiness.com on the Internet, or by calling the OSU department of agricultural economics at 405-744-9826.


The Moore-Norman Technology Center is located at 13301 S. Pennsylvania Ave. in the Oklahoma City metropolitan area.


A number of concurrent sessions will be offered during the conference. Sessions will focus on a variety of high-profile topics about agriculture, alternative enterprises and business and finance. Participants will be able to attend sessions of most interest and value to them.


"The conference is a great resource to learn the latest information on topics that empower women to solve issues and concerns of importance to them, their families and communities," Doye said. "A particular strength of the conference is the ability of participants to personalize their experience."


Keynote speakers are Jolene Brown, professional speaker, author and family business consultant, and Celeste Settrini, a media, graphics and communications expert and founder of Couture Cowgirl 'n Co. Oklahoma Secretary of Agriculture Jim Reese will provide an opening welcome.


"Opportunities for informal networking between participants and interaction with conference experts often lead to personal and professional inspiration, ideas and solutions, as do the informational booths and women-owned businesses featured in the mini-mall," Doye said.


The two-day event is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Risk Management Agency, Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service and numerous sponsors who have helped keep costs low to participants.


Post-conference training features will include the Beef Quality Assurance Program, part of a national program that provides guidelines and best management practices for beef cattle production. It will take place from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Aug. 9.


"The Statewide Women in Agriculture and Small Business Conference really is the place to be in August," Doye said. "Think of it as one-stop shopping to build awareness and skills."


Additional information is available at www.OKWomeninAgandSmallBusiness.com, or by contacting Doye by e-mail at damona.doye@okstate.edu or Jennifer Jensen, project manager, by email at jennifer.jensen@okstate.edu.
