Women in Agriculture Conference
2018 Conference–Stepping Out!
November 2-3, 2018
Oglebay Resort and Conference Center
Wheeling, West Virginia
We all know the challenges facing farmers across our nation, and it is becoming more important each year that we work together to strengthen the face of agriculture.
As this conference has evolved, we have grown together over the past few years. We are eager to keep moving women in agriculture forward with another great line up of farm tours and sessions.
In the past, our conferences have been about “Stepping Forward” in the world of agriculture, and “Stepping Up,” whether its stepping up your game on your own farm or stepping up your game in the local community. This year, we focus on “Stepping Out” – stepping out of your comfort zone, stepping out on your operations, and stepping out to make new connections in the farm community.
On behalf of West Virginia University and WVU Extension Service’s Agriculture and Natural Resources unit, the Women in Agriculture Team invites you to the 5th annual West Virginia Women in Agriculture Conference.
